Ivan has been tattooing for about 8 years, he started from home while studying at school – whoever said making big changes were easy?!
Starting from scratch in his parent’s house, he always loved to draw with different techniques and on different surfaces. In fact, he started painting graffiti, and fell in love with art.
Initially located at his parent’s house, he then made the move to rent a small room inside a barbershop where he was situated for almost three years. At the end of that time period, he started travelling for almost a year tattooing in South America, he then returned home and was stationed in a good tattoo studio in his home city, but he still felt the need to experience more from life and “vualá” Smiley Dogg Tattoo is now his home.
Currently he loves different styles like Neotraditional especially with colour or a kind of Realism in Black and Grey, however he enjoys tattooing everything.
