Alessandro Bonacorsi was born in Modena on 03.05.1975. He began to be fond of tattoos
since the early years, when a few people would dare to exhibit them, and among them not all “saints”.
In 1989, when he was 13, he met a female tattoo artist who, noticing his enthusiasm, taught
him the fundamentals of this wonderful art. Not yet satisfied with this experience, he was
determined to get his first tattoo when he was still a young boy and he did indeed; a tattoo that he still shows with pride.
During the following years, he realized the importance of tattooing and, as a result, started
his “independent career” by opening his own studio. It was anything but easy but Alle was never the giveup
type and spent a considerable amount of time honing his skills, needle on skin day & night.
However, he did not feel totally comfortable being a studio artist, he longed to be at the center of attention indeed, surrounded by people who would listen to him, so he started to turn his attention to other fields.
Soon he made his first television appearances and valuable connections in the show biz, gaining respect even from people far from the tattoo world. He participated in a very successful Italian reality show. Later on several of his “little” dreams gradually took shape and became true:
In 2010 he wrote a book on tattooing as seen from an insider that sold over 10,000 copies and obtained several
acknowledgments, including First Prize at the bookfair of Turin.
As part of his work and passion, he constantly follows Moto GP races and concerts all around the world. In 2010 Alle won a Harley Davidson motorbike for the most clicked tattoo on the Italian web. Looking forward to extend his impressive records, he entered into the World Guinness Records for the longest tattoo session ever and gave the money to charity, as a contribution to found a charity for children in need (encouraging children to express their art talent by providing them with material support).
While taking part in several European fairs, he has also started attending American conventions since 2000 (Baltimore, Las Vegas and Orlando) making several new friends (which he is proud of) in the likes of Sara Blades, and gained numerous connections and experience; he participated in the first Indian event in New Delhi and was awarded the
much soughtafter “best in the show” prize; during that event he met the editors of the Indian Guinness and, as a
Guinness man, he was asked to come back to the capital and establish a new record, the most number of tattoos in 5 minutes; he immediately accepted the challenge and broke the previous record by delivering 102 micro tattoos
(tattooing Rishi, the Indian Guinness man) against 50 by his competitors.
Alle has collaborated and still collaborates with several newspapers and TV channels trying to promote tattooing with his knowledge and career spanning over 20 years. He often plays in musical videos as well.
In 2010 he discovered another passion…Radio
In March, 26 2012 he left for Nepal with Simone Moro, a famous italian climber. Alle has tattooed himself with a goodluck tattoo on Himalayas at 5.990 mt.
In October, 20 2012 came back into the Guinness World Records, consolidating his
previous record “long tattoo session multiple people” ,tattooed nonstop for 48 hours and 2 minutes. The proceeds of the event was used to purchase a truck for his country’s civil protection. The event was followed by a 4 and a half million people (facebook, twitter, web radio, TV).
