Being fascinated with the lifestyles of the tattoo artists, the challenges they face made Raja Gopal want to do it. He attended art school and has always sticked to pursuing art but tattooing happened to him out of fascination. His mentor was Senthil from Skindeep tattoos and was the one who guided him towards traveling around the nation with his art. His greatest inspiration comes from the artists, John MA and Eek glass pani.
Raja’s current venture is MettleInk and he’s traveling around the country taking his art to the next level. Raja Gopal shares that major evolution in his career was due to conventions when he saw senior artists working on tattoos and took guidelines from them. Raja is still exploring new styles and genres and focusing on developing his tattoo art just like he draws, bold and free.
