Sudhir Rao aka “the WIZARD”, as he is famously called. Give him a concept and he will weave his magic to give you a design which is nothing less than mesmerizing and mind-blowing. Inspired by his grandfather, who was an oil painter, Sudhir started sketching at a very young age. He used to steal his grandfather’s oil pastels to fill his own sketchbooks. His parents supported his love for art and egged him on to be as creative as possible and he, in turn, landed up drawing on everything and everyone. His love for art grew further into a love for body art and he started tattooing in early 2000s. He joined full-time tattooing with Body Canvas since September 2008. His favourite style is black and gray illustration and surrealism. However, he does also have a secret love for color. Similar to Vikas, he has a very diverse tattooing style and does not let anything hold him back. He believes the more thought the person puts into their own tattoo ideas – The happier they are with the outcome. It’s all about creating a design for the individual. He says – “Remember that tattoos become a part of you so get to know yourself and then come to see us for some body art!”
Amir Shaikh – Our body builder at BodyCanvas. He not only takes his tattooing very seriously; but also his gyming.
As a boy, Amir was an average student. During his schooling, after too much of coaxing, he took part in a drawing competition. Though he didn’t win the competition, however, post this he developed a liking for drawing and sketching. His parents supported and urged him to follow his passion. He started his career by working in a tattoo studio as a helper before starting on his own in Goa. Post that he joined BodyCanvas and has been an integral part of the team since then.
His favourite style is doing hyperrealism which means miniature portraits with fine line work. He is likes to keep enhancing his skills and push himself beyond his limits.
