Ákos Bánfalvi is a well-known Hungarian journalist and principal contributor to Hungarian Tattoo Magazine, Tattoo Galéria and Tattoo Zone. Everything started with his love for rock music, which led to his career as a music journalist during his teens. He soon became a principal contributor to the Hungarian RockinforM Magazin, where he worked for more than 15 years. During this period, he wrote five successful books about Marilyn Manson, Limp Bizkit, the most famous Hungarian punk ’n’ roll band, Junkies, Hungarian melodic rock band Hooligans, and more. He also worked for years as a host and editor for several rock/metal radio and television programs. His interest turned more and more towards tattoos, and now he lives for this kind of art. He started to work for the Hungarian Tattoo Magazine in 2007, and, since then, has done interviews every month with tattooed bands, tattoo photographers, tattooed models, tattoo artists, and other artists from all around the world for three different Hungarian tattoo magazines. Ákos also occasionally works for the English tattoo magazine Total Tattoo.
