Izzet Abatlevi is a Turkish tattoo artist who works in Beyoglu, Istanbul, Turkey. His decision to become a tattoo artist came right after he was fired from his job in a corporate company because of his own tattoos. Graduated from Mimar Sinan University of Fine Arts – Department of Textile and Fashion Design, he worked several years as a designer; but his real dream come true when he started drawing his own dreams.

“I never regret changing my career” he says. He was 31 when he opened a new page in his life but the passion and enthusiams made up for lost time.
