Japanese Tattoo by George Bardadim
Russian born tattoo artist working in Japanese Tattoo Style(Irezumi)
Started tattooing at age 17 using an ordinary sewing needle and thread- a primitive tattoo method often used in Russia during Soviet power period. In 1988 built my first tattoo machine with a ‘Sputnik’ spring powered shaver, empty ball pen cartridge, and a sharpened guitar string (see pictures). That was beginning of my careerッ
I spend few years working in my private tattoo studio before started traveling around The Globe in 1999 (and keep doing it now), working as a guest artist at the best European and NYC tattoo shops and attending biggest tattoo events such as: London Tattoo Convention, Paris Le Mondial du Tatouage, Frankfurt, Berlin, NYC, Milan etc. Late 90s I also started to create my own tattoo flash sets.
Nowadays I work in Brooklyn, New York and available for appointments in my Shop and Tattoo Conventions.
I work by custom only, so if you like my tattoo style, please, feel free to contact me and I will do my best to help you to create your unique tattoo.
