“Tattoos, I believe, are the most effective way to connect with the deepest and innermost fantasies of people.” - Giri
Passion For Tattoo Started
Art has been a form of expression for him since his early days. He comes from a Brahmin priest family from Bangalore, so he was more interested in rich Indian culture and philosophy and eventually, he got an opportunity by a western artist and started working with him. Over the years he has explored more and more avenues and has grown as an artist, tenfold. But realization hit him the day he got his first tattoo. It was 1998 and since then he hasn't looked back.
"Seeing so many people laying bare their feelings and having so much trust in their tattoo artists, still intrigues me." - Giri
His passion transcended to obsession by the year 2000 and he had no option but to learn this exciting art form. Fortunately, he landed on the steps of a professional tattoo artist from St. Petersburg, Russia. The road had never looked so clear and exciting with so many avenues in front of him. After a couple months of training, it was clear that art came into his life naturally and it was something he loved doing, and would never stop.

The Experience That Matters!

Giri has worked over 12 years and experimented a lot with the help of dermatologist and skin doctors of Bangalore.
While talking to Giri, we got to know about various tattoo forms that are lesser known to people and one of them is Cosmetic Tattoo.
Cosmetic tattoo! What is it?
It is a form of tattooing that is done on patients with leukemia to get their skin colour back, to redrawing eyebrows and even making permanent eyeliner tattoos. Giri believes that this form of tattoo gives a meaning to your life and helps get over the difficulties life has served you.
Style Of Work
All the chemicals and colors Giri uses, are organic and imported from Europe. He keeps a good connection with the European and American artists in order to be updated all the time.
He has been researching a lot on tattooing for 15 years where the history and existence of tattoo and symbols are being the main focus. He is specialized in Indian Traditional Ways of Tattooing which becomes the USP of his work.
"One of the unique applications of our tattoos is that they are pain-free. We use anesthetics to numb the area to provide a painless experience." - Giri
Giri also has experience on the practiced Vedic astrology, numerology, and palmistry. Tattoo gives him positive vibes and inspires him every moment to develop unique and different forms of tattoos.
