ALL NUMBERS HAVE NOW BEEN SOLD!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH TO EVERYONE WHO HAS BOUGHT ONE, YOU GUYS ROCK!!!!!!!
Hi there guys!
I am sure that you are all away of the horrific situation currently occurring in Ukraine. I here would like to show my support and raise some money for PAH.org.pl (Polish Humanitarian Action) who are working to get supplies and helping refugees at the border of Ukraine and Poland. To achieve this, I’m raffling off a full day session worth £600! Each number is going to be £20 and there will be 59 numbers to choose from. This will be a chance to get a good deal and help a very worthy cause at the same time! The winner will be chosen on Saturday 19th March and the winner will be decided by whatever the bonus ball is on the national Lotto!
You can enter by sending the money to the studio account. please message the studio for more information. We just ask that you send over a screenshot of the confirmation of transfer or a screenshot-able receipt and let us know which number you would like to take! These confirmations and number entries can be sent over our Instagram or Facebook direct messages or to email@example.com. Numbers are first come first served so if some cheeky bugger got your number before you we will message you and let you know what is still free.
We will be updating this BLOG post a the end of each working day with the numbers that are still available so make sure you check back.
T’s and C’s:
Thank you so much for your support and please stay safe out there!

I have been invited to take part in Tofi tattoo Experiment where all invited artists designing the same idea in their own style.
It has been a massive challenge as Tofi showed me how to use Zbrush and helped me to make first steps in 3d designing world. 🙂
It was a massive honor to be part of this project and it tuck some planning and many sketches to decide what to do as well with many renders of the final design to make the design work with the forearm as this was the part of the challenge to design it to work with this body part. 🙂
You can see the creative process in ling bellow

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.
