About Me

The creative adult is the child who has survived.

Hi, my name is Levgen, I’m a professional tattoo artist born in Ukraine, in a small city Kupiansk.

I made the first tattoo for my friend. He got a terrible one in the army, a black dragon. Before me, few artists already tried to cover that up, and I was a fourth artist who tried to make that black spot look better. As you understand, my friend didn’t worry, me either. I was in the process of setting everything up correctly and not forgetting anything. The experiment was successful and I realized that I had found my calling. Since then, this hobby has grown and expanded, helping people get the tattoos they want on their bodies, bring change into their lives, and express themselves.

My Style

I call it Illustrated realism. The style is based on realistic images rules like shadows, highlights, foreground, background, composition, contrast, and saturation. The skin is a canvas for tattoos, and it’s a very specific material. I like to take a bright drawing and saturate it with color, even more, making it glow and shine with shades. I want to keep tattoos looking good as long as possible and be clearly seen at a distance as well. I use more contrast, pure colors and play with different special effects like fire or light. I like to use hands, skulls, and fire in my designs, mainly to show some dynamics, mysticism, and bright emotions.

At the same time, as before, I am looking for new horizons and ambitious dreams, constantly improving myself and moving forward.

My Services

I provide the best service for you.

I spend most of my time in the studio in the process of creating a tattoo. However, I am happy to accept offers of teaching and guest visits. 


Tattoo is the main focus of my activity. I spend almost all my time in a tattoo studio in New York. I will be glad to see you among my clients! Go to the page with my portfolio and leave a request.


A few years ago I decided to teach tattoo artists. Since then, I have conducted more than 10 online and offline training for specialists from Europe and America. My webinar is now available in the record, so do not waste time and start learning.


I launched my own merch for tattoo artists, clients, and all the cool guys. Check it out!

Feedback from my clients.

The best feedback on my work is when a client comes back for another tattoo. Fortunately, there are many of them. Creating a tattoo is a painstaking and slow issue, we often talk with clients about life, find common hobbies, and tell stories. There is a synergy that helps to create.
