J. Livieratos a.k.a Live2 was born and raised in Thessaloniki, Greece, where he was a prominent member of the local graffiti scene. Leaving his mark on the wall since 1994, Live2 became one of the most recognized artists in Greece as well as major cities abroad. He was also the organiser behind “Meeting of Styles” graffiti festivals in Greece.
His relationship with Tattoo officially began in 2007, and his days as a graphic designer and graffiti artist are apparent throughout his work. His signature style combines graphic shapes, sketching technics, abstract forms, strict lines, graffiti textures and with an outstanding use of colour in a technique that resembles watercolour effect. The combination of these elements create a unique graphic abstract watercolor result.
An awarded artist, he is a frequent guest in Tattoo Conventions around the world. He currently resides in Zurich and is a member and owner of Switzerland’s tattoo parlour, The Burning Eye Tattoo.
