Mesh Buddha Tattoo Shirt by Tony Paukku

Born in Malmo, Sweden 1965, Tony Paukku began his quest to learn the art of tattooing at the ripe age of 24. In less than a year’s time, he was tattooing full time at Tattoo World in Malmo. In 2000, he relocated and opened his new studio, Tattoo World 2, in Høør, Sweden. Known for his full-coverage Japanese-style tattoo work, Tony Paukku is one of the most respected tattoo artists in Sweden, and the world. Spending a great deal of time traveling throughout Europe and the Orient, he has worked and collaborated with the world’s greatest tattoo masters. Because of this diverse experience, many of his full-body tattoos rival those done by traditional Japanese Irezumi masters, and yet he infuses his own contemporary aesthetic to produce a distinctive style of his own. Often combining detailed free-hand line work with brilliant colors, as well as traditional and contemporary imagery, Tony Paukku commands the respect of the tattoo community at large. In his free time, Tony continues to travel frequently and enjoys racing motorcycles, making him a very difficult tattooist to catch.
