I WOULDN'T IMAGINE THESE AWARDS WITHOUT ALIENS. I CAN SEE A PHENOMENAL CHANGE IN MY WORK AND PERSONALITY AFTER THIS COURSE.
Tennis hails from Nagpur, and is trained under the Artist’s Program at Aliens Tattoo School in January 2019. Tennis had chosen electronics as his career but it didn’t didn’t really excite him. Before he got into being a full time tattoo artist, he was quite confused about his career. He eventually wandered back to his childhood passion - art. After he got his first tattoo with an adventurous decision, he started wondering if this could be his calling. The new tattoo started a row of events which lead him towards his new career choice. He started exploring and gaining some knowledge about tattoos. Tennis eventually told his parents about his decision to explore art as a career and set up a tattoo studio within a few years. But he wasn’t really satisfied with this venture. He felt as if something was lacking and he started searching for a place that would provide a proper education in tattooing.
At the 2018 Heartwork Tattoo Festival, he happened to meet Sunny Bhanushali. They immediately got along, and Sunny Bhanushali offered him a chance to learn tattooing at Aliens Tattoo School. Tennis was overwhelmed by the success of the alumni at Aliens from previous batches. As he had spent a while in tattooing he didn’t have to opt for the beginner’s course. He enrolled for the crash course which is called as the Artist’s Program at Aliens. After completing his 1-month course, he’s been more confident than ever about his tattoo skills. With sheer persistence he got prepped up to perform at Bhopal Tattoo Convention where he bagged his very first Award, Best Black & Grey Tattoo. It was only the beginning.
Tennis, immediately participated at InkMe Tattoo Festival 2019 and bagged two awards viz. 1st runner up for Big Black and Grey tattoo and 2nd for Traditional Tattoo Category in Mumbai. A great success in such less time right? Well, there's more guys, even if you don't believe it.
He had also participated at Heartwork Tattoo Festival, a much bigger and challenging convention in India. Well, he surely isn’t someone who would stop and settle for little and his victory in this biggest fest proves it. Tennis Ramteke bagged the 2nd Prize in A. K Memorial Award at the Heartwork Tattoo Convention, Delhi. Three consecutive conventions, Five glorious awards, and several amazing tattoos...it was indeed a victory to hail for!
