Born 1983, in Poland, Mikołaj Włodarczyk now lives and works in Columbus, Ohio, USA. After completing a Master's Degree in Philosophy, Mikołaj worked various jobs; from carpenter to goldsmith to graphic designer until 2009 when he became a tattoo artist. Now he works as a full-time tattoo artist by day and as illustrator and graphic designer by night.
"In my work, I'm trying to combine and implement experience from different art fields. I experiment with different materials and techniques in order to achieve an interesting effect and later I translate this form to tattoos. I spend several years in Belgium and Spain tattooing and making art. For the past two years, I'm working on Belgium style BD with a seriously sarcastic philosophically-existential background. In 2018, I moved to the USA. Now I live in Columbus Ohio and I got involved with the Evolved Body Art tattoo and piercing studio."
