Prior to beginning his tattoo career, Marky Hladish spent 12 years as a professional illustrator and graphic artist. Having always been captivated and influenced by the artistry and tradition of tattooing, he started his tattoo apprenticeship under Joe Beatty at Dark Heart in 2015. Although now only a few years into his tattoo career, he is clearly bringing his own notable style of illustrated realism into his tattoos, demonstrating a strong sense of composition with a keen attention to detail and sound fundamentals. He enjoys making bold, dark, high-contrast tattoos and putting his own spin on botanical floral. He also enjoys many other styles of tattooing including, black & grey realism, traditional, neo-traditional, and full color pieces.
