Prenzlauer Berg & others
One of Russia’s star tattooers (with around 470,000 Instagram followers), Sasha Masiuk is currently based in Berlin. Since becoming self-taught three years ago, she's now the boss lady behind two studios in Saint Petersburg and Moscow. She’s known for being skilled at monotone, linework, and dotwork -- especially within her signature floral designs.
In Germany’s capital, Sasha has done guest spots at AKA and most recently, Erntezeit (see below). “My first visit to Berlin was last winter,” she says. “I came here to tattoo as I had a lot of requests from over the world and it was easy for my clients to come here for tattoo sessions. My husband Pavel and I loved the city at once because of the creative atmosphere and everybody was so dope.”
