Andrea Ropes è un rigger italiano con base a Bologna e con più di un decennio di esperienza nel bondage giapponese. Dall’inizio del 2015 è diventato professionista ed è spesso in giro per l’Italia, l’Europa e il Giappone per imparare nuove tecniche, per fare spettacoli e insegnare le sue conoscenze sulle corde.

Successivamente ha iniziato a studiarlo come forma d’arte apprendendone le varie tecniche e gli stili che lo caratterizzano, inizialmente come autodidatta, in seguito andando a lezione da grandi maestri come Kanna Nawashi, Haruki Yukimura, Hajime Kinoko, Bob Ropemarks, Otonawa, Bingo Shigonawa, ecc.
