lenascissorhandsToday’s heroine is the woman on vocals of the Nu-Metal band from Moldova, INFECTED RAIN, the charming Lena Scissorhands, with whom we managed to communicate in the framework of the Festival Faine Misto 2018 in Ternopyl.

Reflections of Darkness [RoD]: I would like to ask a couple of questions about the festival first, since we are here at the Faine Misto. How do you like the atmosphere? You already played before in Ukraine?
Lena: Of course. In fact, we used to play much more often. Because we are neighbours and the first countries that we visited were Romania and Ukraine. Then they slowly began to invite us to Europe, and further and further. Sometimes they invite so far that you have to go just for days. But recently it happens that we visit a little less often, not only Ukraine, but also Russia, and near territories. It’s not our fault, it just coincided, we are at the wheel, we work ourselves, and no one helps us. We do not make exceptions, we like to go and play everywhere. In fact, Ukraine has always treated us with an open mind and with a good heart. We are very pleased to play today on stage. It was awesome. I did not want to leave the stage!

DoretteGonschorek1byMichaelSchwettmannUNPLACES released their new record, ‘Changes’, on 1 June. And we had the opportunity to talk to Dorette about tattoos and distract her a little bit from the release right before the first concert of their German tour. Now I would like to share our conversation with you.

Reflections of Darkness [RoD]: When did you get your first tattoo and what was it? How long did it take you to decide to get it?
Dorette: I got my first tattoo at the age of 18 or 19, in time for high school graduation. It was a female angel with a halo and a bared chest holding a “metal axe” (an electric guitar) in her hand. I did not mull over it for very long, I just wanted to get it, and the image just simply fit me.

LouGOddon introI like coincidences, just as I was on holiday in Italy, I was contacted by Lou, the vocalist of the Melodic Metal band of BLACK LIGHT from Italy. We did not manage to organize a meeting, but this did not stop us from holding the interview anyway, especially because Lou recently entered in this world of pain and ink, so his impressions were fresh and bright.

Reflections of Darkness [RoD]: When did you get your first tattoo and what was it? Did it take much time until you decided to get it done?
Lou: I got my first tattoo one month ago. I was thinking about it since a lot of time, and when I got the chance to make it, I just caught it. The tattoo represents a lightsaber, with the word “Djem-So” coming outta the blade. Then we added an orange background, some leaves, and crystals. For the ones who don’t know, on the Star Wars universe, the lightsaber blade’s colour depend on the crystal placed into it, which also makes the blade to exist as well. This type of crystal is called a “kyber”.

bogdansorokin introOur guest today comes from Ukraine and represents the Modern Glam Rock scene. His love to the beautiful Japanese culture has been implemented in most parts of his tattoos. So let’s listen to his story.

Reflections of Darkness [RoD]: When did you get your first tattoo and what was it? How long did it take you to decide to get it?
Bogdan: I was interested in tattoos from an early age. When I was a child, I remember pausing ‘Showdown in Little Tokyo’ on my VCR to look at the painted Yakuza. But I got my first tattoo only when I was 21. It took me a long time to make up my mind. And perhaps it influenced what I decided to get in the end - I clearly knew that I wanted nothing less than a whole “sleeve”. Naturally, it had to be done in Japanese style, with flowers, waves and Oni [supernatural ogres or trolls in Japanese folklore]. Of course, it took more than just one evening to get it done, but I walked out of the first session with my forearm almost completely covered in ornaments.

elenaosadcha introToday, I am happy to introduce a wonderful woman and a skilled designer Elena Osadchа. She expresses her love for beauty not only through her fantastic jewellery, but also through her tattoos, and she has quite a few of those. But I will not reveal all the secrets in the introduction. Enjoy the interview.

Reflections of Darkness [RoD]: When did you get your first tattoo and what was it? How long did it take you to decide to get it?
Elena: I got my first tattoo at the age of 18. It was a solar symbol on my shoulder blade. I had planned to do it for a long time, so, when the time came, my mind was already made up.
