An incredibly diverse artist, there is literally no style in which he doesn’t excel, but if you push him on it he will tell you that Japanese, and big custom projects are his favorite pieces to do, his attention to detail is legendary which also makes him a fantastic realism and fine line exponent.

Meet Wawan!
Just 25 years old and tattooing for only 6 years, Wawan is a young man destined for the very very top.
Born in Malang it was clear from a young age that he was going to be an artist of some sort, fortunately for us he chose tattooing!
Absolutely loves a challenge, there is no style he doesn’t relish, his realism, fine line, mandala and floral work is simply beautiful, but equally at home with the bolder styles like old school, neo trad, Japanese, whilst his rich color work needs to be seen.
With an incredible appetite to keep growing you will find Wawan a joy to work with!
