There are thousands of talented tattoo artists around the world, so to be picked by a celebrity you not only need to be at the top of your game, you also need to be chill. Celebrities want to feel at home in a tattooer’s chair and put their trust in an artist who can kick it like a homie. Ganga is one of those world-class artists who has impressed the likes of Hollywood with his top-tier skillset, notably chart-topping musicians Drake, Post Malone, Chris Brown and Nicky Jam. We sat down with Ganga to uncover his meteoric rise in the industry and understand why he’s decided to make Los Angeles home.

Take us through your start in the tattoo industry. The beginning of my tattoo career was difficult. Initially, nobody wants to get tattooed by you because you don’t have experience.

I tried every style, and it’s paved the way for what I do today. There's no specific reason behind why I do black-and-grey, I guess it’s the style I feel most comfortable doing.
