Eden's career as a tattoo artist began when one of his skater friends bought the cheapest machine they could find from eBay. "He let me try it out and eventually, he became my first client. Then I offered free body art to everyone I knew," he told Inked Magazine.

The Israeli said that the tattoo culture in his country is very small, loving, and supportive. "My tattooer friends and I are trying our best to show everyone that tattoos are nothing less than an expression of art."

"I tried to find a way to express my classical painting knowledge within a size that could fit people who can't commit for a sleeve or big work," Eden explained what pushed him towards focusing on micro tattoos. "I try to design as minimalistically as possible. In design, I believe that less is more."

However, some people think these tiny tattoos won't heal well. "That's why it’s important for me to post my healed tattoos."

Now, Eden is part of Keith “Bang Bang” McCurdy's prestigious crew. “Bang Bang” has left his mark on Rihanna, Justin Bieber, and Miley Cyrus. Many consider him to be the most famous tattoo artist in the world, or as some have said, tattoo artist to the most famous in the world.

Getting human faces right on such small scale, is really a work of art.
