Featured Tattoo Artist | Mirko Sata

Name: Mirko Sata
Age: 28
Location: Milan, Italy

How did you get into the industry? Was it hard to find an apprenticeship?

I had already many friends tattooing  and I got curious about it so I bought the tools and I started tattooing at home.

It was easy too cause I had already many people appreciating my abilities as an artist in others fields plus it took me very short time to get clever with the machine.

How long have you been tattooing? 

Its been 3 and an half years. 

What inspires you?

Most of my jobs are inspired by my dreamlike experience, my recurring dreams.
Starting from here my subjects evolves based also on my knowledge about symbolism, esotericism, mysticism & magic.

But what gave me the push to become a trend setter is my muse and gf Ilenia, she's the real magic for me.

Who are your favourite tattoo artists?

Pietro Sedda, Maxime Buchi, Johnny Gloom, Luxiano street classic, Abby Drielsma,Thieves of Towers, Isaiah Thoothtaker, Kane Trubenbacher, Apro Lee,Tati Compton, Sean from Texas, Han Shinko.

How would you describe your tattoo style?

I would say it's "esoteric vanguard", a contemporary version of the esoteric aesthetics, in others words the classic one but contaminated by the new art forms and the fashion world.

What have you learned from the industry?

I learn that if you have the guts to push your ideas even against majority taste you will have satisfaction. Also I have learned how deal with people's outbursts!

If you weren't tattooing what would you be doing?

Drug dealer lol ..not really

What advice do you have to people considering careers in tattooing?

Nowadays tattoos are fully a form of art so I would suggest to always looking for new ways of expression.

What are some of the best things you have experienced as a result of your career?

The satisfaction when my work gets good feedback.

Where do you currently tattoo?

In my studio Satatttvision in Milan.
