I started tattooing in Poland in 1993 after a coincidental visit to an artist in Sweden while still an arts student. The minute I stepped into his studio I knew I was dealing with something extraordinary. I was hooked!
In 1998 I opened my first tattoo shop 'Perun' in the city of Gdansk and I got my Master of Fine Arts in classical painting and conceptual art.
I continued to develop these two disciplines, running my tattoo shop and exhibiting and performing in galleries throughout Europe.
In 2003 I decided to explore my other big passion -music. I closed my shop and moved to Berlin which was the most buzzing place in Europe at the time.
While still tattooing I got involved in a few punk bands ( The Nothings, The Assassinations) and developed my solo project 'Tony Clash'. Being a part of Berlin's music scene meant most of my customers were touring bands and rockstars from all over the world.
In 2006 I started to run 'No Pain No Brain Tattoo Parlour and Gallery' opened by my friend Wally from the White Trash Club. I also began to travel more and do guest spots including working with Henning Jorgensen at Royal Tattoo (Denmark) as a regular guest artist which was a big influence on my career.
In 2008, together with my lovely Australian wife Joni, I made the big move to Sydney to try out a sunnier lifestyle. I started to work at Kaleidoscope Tattoo and then Inner Vision Tattoo Shop where I still continue my tattoo journey.
I'm focused on custom tattooing, trying to deliver unique tattoos yet based on best traditions.
My inspiration comes from all different paths which express a fusion of western tattooing, art and fashion history, fetish and erotic art,photography and vintage illustration.
