The artist, which will be hero of today's publication, lives and works in Gdynia (Poland).
Please meet - Marcin Pawlus - a tattoo artist and the founder of the DWA ŚLEDZIE tattoo studio, which in translate from Polish means "Two Herrings". This name is due to the fact that these fishes are depicted on the state emblem of Gdynia.
Marcin's favorite task is full-scale thematic hybrids with interlacing the themes of the Middle Ages and marine. Preferring to work in black and grey, he pays maximum attention to the smallest details of the work, working out each line, each shade. He draw inspiration for his tattoos from the images of medieval art and Japanese woodcut engravings. Several techniques of tattooing are intertwine in his works: traditional and graphic tattoo, dotwork, elements of tattoo-realism and many others.
These distinctive features and the total dedication to the art of tattooing, brought him many awards at international and Polish tattoo conventions and festivals, publications in world famous tattoo magazines and the seat of a jury member at the festival in Gdansk (Poland).
As Marcin says:
«In my opinion my biggest achievement is being independent, do what I really love and to have good and interesting people around me in my life. For me there is no such a thing like a „free time” if you really work with a passion. I love to travel, after work I usually draw or paint, read. I always try to find and see something inspiriting and new – it’s good for me, for my brain, so finally it’s good for my work also. And I'm inspired by my wife and our two black cats. Always!»
