I was born in the city of Osijek in 1980. I graduated from Mechanical-Technical High School in Osijek, where in the 2-grade I had my first encounter with tattooing. By the end of high school, a few of my friends and I mutilated (tattooed) each others with a needle and a thread. After high school, I served in military where my desire for tattooing took shape (whole bunch of test subjects 😀).
In 2001., I bought my first professional tattoo equipment and slowly entered the world of tattooing. Back in those days, there were no professional tattoo studios in my area (the closest one was in Zagreb), so I had a chance to work on my skill from home.
In 2004., together with my wife, I set up and opened Anubis, with the goal of giving our county its first quality and professional tattoo studio. I specialized in color realism. I’ve attended the seminars with some of the world’s top tattoo masters Mike Devries and Joe Copabianco. Throughout the years, I’ve never stopped investing in education, material, equipment and safety for which I was recognized and rewarded on many international tattoo conventions.
Naturally, that only gave me an even greater desire and motivation for advancement.
That is how it was up to 8 years ago. A lot has changed since; for better or for worse, it is up to you to decide.
I stopped competing, I came up and implemented a new, innovative approach to tattooing, I pulled myself from the mainstream tattoo world and closed the doors of my tattoo studio, I choose my clients by their character or, in other words, I don’t work with everyone. Every project between my clients and me has always been realized by ideal symbiosis; work system, technique and stiles were adapted for clients so they would get the most out of me.
I’m conducting educations and seminars, and am in the process of completing a few big projects for which you will be notified.
