Dmitriy was born in the City of Orsk, Russia in the Southern Urals Mountains, where East and West meet. Since an early age Dmitriy loved drawing – animals, portraits, and copying images from glossy magazines. He was admitted to Ekaterinburg School of Art at a much earlier age than his fellow students, and graduated with the highest honors.
In September, 2014, Dmitriy began his apprenticeship with the renowned Tattoo Master Vitaly Tref. In only 9 months, Dmitriy received his First Prize in “Best of Day” category at the Moscow Tattoo Week Convention 2015. Within a few months he won two more top prizes at the Tattoo Conventions that followed.
Dmitriy works in the style of Color Realism and likes designs with multiple, intricate details. He draws his inspiration from photography and the works of other great tattoo artists. Dmitriy likes to work on “big tattoos, cool projects, and achieving great results.”
