"What was not art yesterday can become one. Then, it begins to need interaction internally and externally - multidisciplinary. At the same time, there remains the need to create freely, fleeing from the ugly reality of the nonconformism of the underground. Then, the goal is to create a new platform for interactive art. Media platforms and a shelter for art in itself. Where it is both a continuous kitsch and an intellectual feat. The conditions that allow knowledge to go into constructive communication and vice versa. Just in time. If the artist has a deity, then everyone finds his temple. For beauty is not in culture but in eternity." Slava Kononov.

The tattoo studio project is located on the territory of the former ribbon-weaving factory on Nyzhnoiurkivska Street in Kyiv. The industrial past gave the building a structural skeleton of columns and beams. The system of this construct has influenced the creation of the zone. The acid-colored PVC curtain protects the workroom from draughts and dust, creating a comfortable environment for tattooing. The guest area has a reception, merchandise shop, relaxation zone, and restroom. A private space also serves as a workshop, a warehouse and a recreation area. An old brick shell crumbled and collapsed with time and precipitation. The best solution was to finish it using wet waterproofing. The new glossy black primary color repeats the texture of the old shell and creates a fantastic effect. A light structure was made according to the configuration of the beams. It passes through all the zones with linear light, dividing each artist into groups.
