The Driving Force behind this Initiative is Vigneshkumar Shiva who after completing his Basic Course in Pune (Sabby’s Tattoo Studio) travelled to Bangkok to Learn & Work there as part of his Advanced Training.


He has also Trained under Masters like Andrea Afferni from Italy (Specialising in Color Realism) & Anil Gupta based out of New York City (Specializing in Black & Grey Portraits) apart from Reading books / Watching Videos by Masters like Guy Aitchison, Nikko Hurtado & Joe Capobianco amongst others.

Vigneshkumar Believes that Tattooing is an Art Form requiring Specialization &there is No End to the Learning & Improvisations.
