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.

Tattoos by Halo

HALO blog header

 Helios Tattoo is proud to sponsor this TAM Artist Spotlight interview with Halo Jankowski. Easily one of the most recognizable tattoo artists in the world today (following his stint on Spike TV’s long-running Ink Master tv show in season 4), Halo transcends the typical tv-personality status usually associated with artists who have ‘been on tv’ because he’s actually a really GOOD tattooer! And that matters a LOT more than people realize. It’s way more important to get a tattoo from someone who’s good than from someone who’s ‘famous’. Halo Jankowski just happens to be both!  Featured Artist: Halo Jankowski  Follow him here: http://www.blacklotustattoos.com https://www.facebook.com/BlackLotusTattooGallery https://www.instagram.com/blacklotustat2gallery https://twitter.com/BlackLotusTat2s       We caught up with Halo recently and asked him some questions about his time on Ink Master, how he got into tattooing, his life, career and plans for the future: First off, thanks to Helios for making this interview happen. It’s really refreshing to see this new symbiosis in the tattoo world- there are so many artists out there on social media every day showing support & sharing the companies they believe in, but it’s even more refreshing to find the good, quality companies who are doing the same thing- showcasing and promoting the artists who actually buy and use their products. So, real quick- I know you use their needles and the Helios Rotary Pen tattoo machine; how are these tools affecting your art & would you recommend them to other professionals?  Absolutely! When it comes to needle cartridges, I’ve tried them all, and ... Read More »
