Before Mr. Lucky started this studio, he traveled all over the world studying different styles of tattooing. He watched traditional hand sculpting tattooing in Samatra Island, Marawi Island, he studied many traditional tattoo artists. "It was great study for me because I love the traditional way of tattooing and I'm serious about it. I like the Japanese way of tattooing. Japanese tattoo artists consider tattoo a part of the body, so they create artwork along with the bodyline so it looks natural. "I'm studying how muscle is built and I pay attention to the body line when I create a tattoo, then the tattoo looks natural to the body and the technique is great."
