We can see different kinds of artists nowadays who put their best foot forward towards the workpiece they are doing, making sure, that it is perfect and without any blemish. Not only because they want to be recognized for their meticulous approach, but in order to build a continuous connection with people they are working with. One of the best trait an artist should have!
This is what a 31-year old Czech artist, Ondrej Konupcik is known for, who is also motivated to design a watercolor painting in all his tattoos. Though some described it as Outsider art ( rough art) which is beyond the conventional form, he never denies it. He who is also known by the name, ONDRASH literally is sensible of his client’s satisfaction. His method of tattooing requires a lot of focus and dedication, that is why he seriously allocates his time to do one tattoo a day.
“He’d rather use the time face-to-face with his client so that, together, they can brainstorm the perfect idea,” one client recounted the meeting with 31-year-old Czech. “This meant so much to me. Someone who cared enough about his work and his clients to give them all that time. I’d never heard of any tattoo artist who does that.”
“I work on one customer a day so I have enough time for each person”
“I have no catalogs”
“I like to draw tattoos directly onto skin of the customers, as if they are tailor-made”
“The customer writes me what they wish and I draw it for them”
“The lines then perfectly fit with the curves”
“I see it very personally—often as a legacy of experiences and feelings of my client”
“Almost every tattoo I’ve done, I could tell you the story behind it”
“It is my task in the design process to illustrate exactly what the client has long desired for their own original tattoo”
