Hi, my name is Denis Torikashvili (aka Tdan) I’m from Rostov-on-Don, south of Russia. It is where I started tattooing in 1997. Practically there was no information about tattoo that time and I had to work in very difficult conditions.
In that year I bought my first tattoo machine Micky Sharpz. From that time I began to search the information I was interested in and started sketching. In those years tattoo forums and internet communities just started to appear. I took part in St. Petersburg tattoo convention in 2005 for the first time and won a prize in 2006. It was best of the day tattoo, my first award.
I made the black and gray portrait. I worked in some tattoo shops in Rostov and than I opened my own tattoo shop. I worked in different tattoo styles. I made not bad Japanese tattoos, ornament, American traditional tattoos and realistic. I treat traditional styles with a great respect but it requires a profound knowledge of a culture and maximum immersion into the styles. Everything changed in 2014.
I decided to move to Moscow and started all over again. I began experiment, created collages and and trying to realize my unique ideas on the skin. One day I made a Sackboy (Little big planet PS game).
That tattoo became very popular and I realized that I found my own style. It’s funny cute characters. I made a lot of tattoos in that style and that was fun. In 2016 I focused on black and grey tattoos.
I had a lot of trips working as a guest artist and I attended many tattoo conventions. And I have got some trophies. From 2017 I am a resident artist in NR studio London
