Even after completing his studies, he felt like something was missing. He was quite confused about his career but eventually wandered back to his childhood passion - art. 

Like many of us have that one hobby we loved as a kid, Tennis loved drawing. Years later, he found himself pursuing something else, like many of us. For him, it was polytechnic engineering. Tennis hails from Nagpur, India. And that is where he was studying engineering. Although he had chosen electronics as his career, it didn't really excite him. Even after completing his studies, he felt like something was missing. He was quite confused about his career but eventually wandered back to his childhood passion - art.

After getting his first tattoo with an adventurous decision, he started wondering if this could be his calling. The new tattoo started a row of events that led him toward his new career choice. He started exploring and gaining some knowledge about tattoos. He decided to inform his parents about his decision to explore art as a career & he set up his own tattoo studio within a few years. Still, he wasn't really satisfied with this venture. He felt as if something was lacking. He had enough passion but what he lacked was proper training & guidance. He realized this & so he started searching for a place that would provide him with proper education in tattooing.

 

At the 2018 Heartwork Tattoo Festival, he happened to meet Sunny Bhanushali. They immediately took off, and Sunny offered him a chance to learn tattooing at Aliens Tattoo School. He enrolled in a crash course called the 'Artist's Program.' It was a 1-month advanced crash course that helped him learn and improve techniques and helped him become a better tattoo artist. After completing the course, he became more confident than ever.

"My experience with Aliens Tattoo Art School has been beyond my expectations. I chose Aliens because I always wanted to be surrounded by highly professional mentors and such an atmosphere, which I couldn't have had anywhere else. The confidence I had in my tattooing skills skyrocketed. I could see it in my client's smile."

With sheer persistence, he got prepped up to perform at Bhopal Tattoo Convention. To his surprise, he bagged his very first Award, Best Black & Grey Tattoo. But it was only the beginning. Later on, Tennis bagged numerous awards at various conventions by creating jaw-dropping designs, especially Black and Grey Tattoos.

 

Tennis has many awards to his name, including Dr. J. A Kohiyar Memorial Award, the Best of Friday, Best Small Black and Grey, Best Oriental Tattoo at the Bhopal tattoo festival, 1st Runner Up in Black and Grey, 2nd Runner Up Traditional Tattoo at the InkMe tattoo convention held in Mumbai. 

 

"Award is just the recognition of your better version than yesterday. My real award is my satisfied clients and their smiles."
