Biomechanical scrap sculptures
In search of inspiration and reference for my tattoo designs, I have created a series of sculpture projects that represent body parts, everyday items and half body figures (in collaboration with Jordan Oterski). The idea is to show how technology influences our daily lives, with metal, steel machinery and electronics hidden behind nice packaging and working in the background. We tend to not think much about how things work or how helpful they are, or even how dependent we are on them.
A Year later I created the vision of Mother Earth being overtaken by the cold metallic form of human technological progress and expansion.
The work was influenced by the creations of HR Giger and a post catastrophic vision of our daily life. In research for ideas and inspiration, I aimed to change the simple look of our normal daily life devices that are now packed with sophisticated technology. I started experimenting with mixed mediums. With some mechanical parts, a little expandable foam, DIY tricks and an airbrush, I came out with my first piece to be featured in the Gundry National Gallery at a local artists exhibition.
My next project was the Tattoo Art Exhibition.
This project gave me a chance to prepare and showcase some of my twisted visions of things that are such an everyday part of peoples lives.
Some of the pieces were showcased in other exhibitions, such as
Hive Arts Magic Weekend, which featured on BBC radio. Check out the video:
Once again, some were used as references for tattoo designs.
My next project was a collaboration with Jordan Oterski. 😊 https://www.instagram.com/p/BN6IrkXAkg4/
This piece was used as a reference for a tattoo design that Jordan tattooed on me. 😊
Eventually this sculpture was auctioned at Tatcon Tattoo Convention in Blackpool in the Charity Art Auction alongside pieces of art from other artists at the show.
The profits were donated to Blackpool Lifeboat Station
The next exhibition featured my collaboration with Anna Paprzycka, a documentarist and filmmaker. This was shown at Grundy National Gallery in Blackpool at a local artists exhibition. 😊
I created my vision of a futuristic TV breaking out from behind prison bars to visualise the story from Annas short Documentary about an ex convict who changed his life around and created a TV show to educate people about scam awareness. The show become very popular in Poland.
The next exhibition at Hive was ‘Unlocked’ Expressions of Solitude, which featured artwork created by local artists during the 1st Lockdown.
Through the lockdown I started a new adventure with 3D printing and began learning to use Zbrush 3D design software to combine my skills to create the next level of tattoo #Reference.
Firstly, all of us here at Inkden Tattoo and Laser Removal Clinic would like to thank you for your continued support over this past year. It really means the world to us!

As many of you have seen with all that is going on around the world our much needed NHS service has been asking for donations.
After much research we decided to go to the public and ask our clients if they knew of anyone local that could help us in our mission to give back to the NHS.
After an amazing response on our Facebook we had the details we needed. After some phone calls we were set. Shamack and Anna travelled to the hospital to a safe point to donate to Victoria hospital. A big thank you to everyone for your messages, phone calls and names.
We are very proud to announce we have donated over a 1,000 PPE items to our hospital. Including disposable gloves in all sizes, disposable aprons and disposable sleeve protectors.
We have heard back of Ward 19 where we donated the items and they are very grateful for these and are being used as you read this blog. We will photos of the staff to come shortly.
We would like to take this time to thank all of the NHS, our customers and everyone who is helping how they can in this challenging climate we are all in at the moment. Stay safe everyone and we cant wait to see you all again soon.
