Pawandeep Singh

From an underdog to an award winning Tattoo Artist

From an aspirant to an award winning artis: Here’s how Pawandeep changed his fate in just 3 months

This is a motivational story of a man who took the leap of faith towards immediate success. Pawandeep was just another young man struggling to find a direction in his life. He had always loved art and used to draw and paint since childhood. However, how to use that passion for art into an occupation was a question he struggled with throughout his teenage years.


Pawandeep saw an ad of students at Aliens Tattoo Art School making beautiful art. He thought to himself that if mere students are able to make such exceptional artwork, then how would they turn out after completion of the course? Before joining the Aliens Tattoo Art school, he used to draw and sketch but not professionally. There was quite a lot that he did not know about art.


At Aliens Tattoo Art School, he met the person whom he now whole heartedly  idolizes, Sunny Bhanushali - the founder of Aliens Tattoo and Aliens Tattoo Art School. Under the mentorship of Sunny and his trainers, Pawandeep’s art skills and techniques flourished. He was able to grasp all the art concepts wonderfully thanks to a lot of hand holding that happened at the one month tattoo course he enrolled in. Apart from art skills, he was quite moved by Sunny’s motivational speeches about how an artist in this day and age makes a living out of his art. Having trained and facilitated thousands of students, Sunny was able to touch all the right chords that enabled Pawandeep to work hard.

His hard work paid off when he was invited to participate at India’s biggest Tattoo Art Competition: The Heartwork Fest. As a newly trained artist, Pawandeep was happy just to be able to get sponsored for the competition, but he ended up surprising everyone including himself by bagging the award for the best portrait tattoo! This achievement was marvelous for him since even veteran tattoo artists with five years of experience in tattoo art find it very difficult to win an award in this tattoo category.


Pawandeep knows that the scope of tattooing is huge and is only about to increase in the future. He started off in a small village with meager savings, but he had the conviction of using his art to do something big in life. His father supported his goals and believed in him, his art, and his dedication towards his work. He struggled to save up enough money to join the Tattoo Art School and made it worth every penny. Today, his work is recognised by many celebrities across the country and his tattoos are in demand.


“I already had high hopes from Aliens Tattoo Art School but they exceeded all those high expectations in terms of teaching art to someone having zero to minimum background in art”, he said. The lessons are a lifelong learning that through practice can be sharpened and used to earn a healthy living. 


You too can enroll in the same course as Pawandeep and try to participate in these huge festivals and competitions through training and practice that you’ll get enough of in the Tattoo Art School.
