About Me

I was born on Oct. 29, 1983 in Bulgaria but I spent the first years of my life in Cuba. When I was 9 years old my family moved to Bulgaria. At the age of 14 I was admitted at the Art School of Plovdiv, where I studied drawing and fine arts in general for 5 years and graduated successfully in 2002. I did my first tattoo jobs while serving in the army. After I was released from military service in 2003 I enrolled at the Art Academy in Plovdiv where I studied for two years. I have had a passion for tattoos ever since I was a child, so after two years of academic studies I decided to quit and pursue a career as a professional tattoo artist. I have happily worked in this field for the past 5 years and I really believe I have found my true calling as an artist. I started to work professionally in 2005. I worked for two summer seasons in Sunny Beach and for two winter seasons in Borovets, Bulgaria. After that I worked in Sofia at "Butterfly Tattoo Studio" with my very good friend Stephan. In 2007 I was invited to work in Cyprus at "Hard Core Tattoo Studio" and "Rock Eagle Tattoo Studio" in Agia Napa and Limassol. In the summer of 2010 I worked at "Easy Rider Tattoo Studio" in Agia Napa , "Hasta la Muerte Tattoo Studio" in Nicosia and now i am working in Blancolo Tattoo Studio Glasgow
