Ok, the Frequently Asked Questions is a bit different from the Finnish version of the page. There we talked about what you need to know if you are a first-timer. But here, we’ll share some information in case you are coming from abroad.
We do have guest artists, but since we currently have only three spots in our studio, we usually have guests when we have our holidays etc. Our idea is to offer our customers something special – artists with their own, very unique style. Guest artists are important to us and our customers, so we want to offer an exclusive package for our guests, which includes arranging an accommodation (location under 500m from the studio), promoting artist on our social media, booking customers on the calendar by our shop manager Evy… bad jokes are included for the package too, sponsored by our easygoing team.
We only accept guests who come within European Union and who have a valid VAT.
If you are interested of doing a guest spot in Krunikan Leima, send email to our shop manager Evy: evy (a) krunikanleima.fi
We try to travel around Europe participating on tattoo conventions as often as possible and if you are interested of getting tattooed by one of us, but travelling to Finland is not an option, maybe ask us to visit your local tattoo convention? We cannot promise that we’ll be there, but we will definitely look into it! In 2016 we were on two Finnish conventions and one on Lithuania and one in Estonia. In 2017 Elisabet was in Umeå. We usually have special rates on conventions as well.
We all speak English quite fluently, some better than others. Everyone’s native language is Finnish, expect Parn’s, who is native thai. So Parn speaks pretty good Thai, or at least it sounds like it (we others don’t understand it). Parn’s Finnish isn’t that good though. Elisabet can say a few words in French as well. Ilari is well-known for his Estonian language skills when drunk, but since he doesn’t drink anymore, you probably won’t hear him talking any of it. Evy has studied many languages in her past, like French, German, Spanish etc, but has forgotten most of them. And Swedish? Nope. (Maybe Lisbet can speak some).
Nope. You never tip your artist in Finland, but we are collecting money for Animalia, the animal rights organization, so you can leave them some. We would really appreciate it.
Yup. You can.
If you have questions the best way is to send us email and ask. We are more than happy to help you out.
