We have currently four resident artists working in Krunikan Leima: Ilari Musta, Parn Zanco, Tuomas Valtanen and Oi. From the original crew of 2016 Elisabet Waris is now taking a break from tattooing and is not available for bookings.
Ilari Musta is the owner of Krunikan Leima and has tattooed since 2012. He focuses on cartoon style and semirealistic tattoos, but does lots of ornaments and jewelry tattoos as well.
Besides being an Entrepreuner and a Tattoo Artist, Ilari has created a career in Publication Design and designed and art directed magazines such as Image, Talouselämä and Mikrobitti. He is also one of the founders of Guild of Visual Journalism and as a tattoo artist has been awarded and published Internationally.
Ilari speaks Finnish and English.
Parn Zanco was one of the founding members of Krunikan Leima back in 2016 and he specializes in japanese style black’n’grey realism and has 15 years of experience in tattooing. He is part of the Zanco School and has been educated by award-winning Jiep Zanco in Thailand.
Parn himself has been awarded in Finland as a tattoo artist, but also in Estonia and Lithuania.
Parn speaks English and Thai.
Tuomas Valtanen is extremely inspired by art nouveau aesthetics, the thick linework of comics and occult themes and he specializes in neotraditional tattoo style.
Growing up listening to heavy metal music and being fascinated by album artwork, today he not only creates awesome tattoos, but designs t-shirt illustrations for musicians within Finland such as Amorphis, Swallow the Sun and Battle Beast, but also internationally well-known artists like Myrkur, Misery Index and Anneke van Giersbergen.
Tuomas speaks Finnish and English.
Oi is the latest addition to Krunikan Leima’s artist roster and she specializes in fine line and blackwork tattoos. As her Instagram name tells – Flowers by Oi – she works mostly on floral designs, but all nature themes are close to her heart.
Oi started working as a tattoo artist in Finland back in 2017 and has also been working in Thailand.
Oi speaks Finnish, English and Thai.
