I was born in a small town called Yampil, in the Vinnitsa Region in Ukraine. I went to a special art school for children for 8 years. Upon my graduation, I entered the University in Kharkov, Ukraine where I studied architecture and design. That is where I made my first steps as a tattoo artist. In my sophomore year, I built a tattoo machine and started tattooing my friends and my friends’ friends. I realized then that it wasn’t just a hobby, it was the work I wanted to do all my life; that it was my passion. I worked in the studio Hell Room in Kharkov, then moved back to Vinnitsa and worked in the studio Save My Ink. Right now, I’m in the process of building my own studio.
