Marky Hladish spent 12 years as a professional illustrator and graphic artist prior to entering the world of tattooing. Having always been heavily influenced by the artistry and tradition of tattooing, he finished his tattoo apprenticeship under Joe Beatty at Dark Heart in 2015. Although only a few years into his tattoo career he is 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 as well as many other styles including neo-traditional, and full color pieces.
