As soon as Silvano Fiato figured out it was possible to reproduce his drawings and paintings onto a person’s skin, he was hooked on tattooing and has been working in this field ever since. This self-taught artist specializes in photorealist tattoos, some with horror features which may relate to his admiration for creatives like Robert Hernandez and Bob Tyrell. Recently mentioned in Inkstyle magazine, Fiato can be found working at his lush studio in Genova, Italy.
