For some years, Marcin Aleksander Surowiec is known as one of the finest contemporary tattoo artists to emerge from Poland—with his own brand of solid tattoos in technicolour, it's quite hard not to see why he deserves the reputation. We're among the many admirers of his semi-abstract, psychedelic works.

And even with monochrome, Surowiec manages to play with contrasts, singularity, and hues. He knows where to tone down and go overboard with ink without ever making his works look too crowded.

One thing I love most about Surowiec's works is how his tattoos turn out as if they were made to appear on the poster of a classic cult film. They're mostly very solid, vibrant, and classy.

Surowiec manages to maintain a uniform style through all his works without seeming overused and bland. We do think a good tattoo artist has the ability to keep a sense of what his clients loved about his style without being boring overtime.
