My name is Viktor Meyer. I was born in Russia in 1974 and moved to Fürth, Germany in 1995. Drawing, to me, has always been a passion of mine since childhood; when I decided to tattoo in 2003, I bought my first machine and started. At the beginning, I was taken under my good friend Miro Thomas’ wings, he answered all my questions so I can look over his shoulders. At first I tattooed almost everything, I wanted to try different styles, then soon I tied myself to realistic tattoos. I prefer to do black-and-grey tattoos, which I think last longer and my clients can enjoy the tattoos longer. There are a lot of young, motivated tattoo artists working in my studio, Viktor Tattoo in Fürth, and they all work with Cheyenne; we also often have guest artists, especially from Russia. Our group of tattoo artists often visit conventions in Moscow, Frankfurt and Zwickau.
Why I use Cheyenne
I was in the very first Cheyenne row and Konrad handed me my first HAWK
. I tried every single Cheyenne machine since then, the HAWK Spirit
to the HAWK Thunder
, the HAWK PEN
and of course the new SOL Nova
. Now my favorite machine to work with is the Cheyenne HAWK PEN. It is a matter of habits to me. I can work with whatever comes into my mind with the machine and Safety Cartridges
