Artist Spotlight – Anabi

Anabi @anabi_tattoo1

Anabi @anabi_tattoo Anabi has been drawing ever since he was a kid. He enjoyed reading comic books, drawing his favorite heroes and creating his own histories. He drew his first tattoo back in 1999 but didn’t start seriously tattooing every day until 2007. Today, he’s one of the most talented tattoo artists on the planet.

Artist Spotlight – AD Pancho

AD Pancho5

AD Pancho (Alex Pancho) @ad_pancho While most insanely talented tattoo artists are able to create designs of any and every style, many tend to become well-known for one or two particular forms and become the go-to artist for said style. However, AD Pancho is a bit of an oddity because he doesn’t stick to any one particular style. Follow his Facebook or Instagram accounts and you’re sure to see a variety of tattoo styles that you won’t get from a lot of other tattoo artists. It’s his high level of talent coupled with this level of variance that makes AD Pancho such an impressive artist. He’s a Polish artist who works out of Needle Art Studio in Wroclaw, Poland. If you ever find yourself in the area and are able to do so, we highly suggest getting a tattoo done by him. A single glance at the gallery below should be enough to understand why.
