Prior to beginning his tattoo career, Marky Hladish spent 12 years as a professional illustrator and graphic artist. Having always been inspired by the artistry and tradition of tattooing, he entered into a formal apprenticeship under Joe Beatty at Dark Heart in 2015. Although now only a few years into his tattooing 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, American traditional, neo-traditional, and full color pieces.
