In recent years, tattoo art has gained increasing popularity, and Atalay Golge, a young and talented tattoo artist, is one of the rising stars in this world. Atalay, who is based in Izmir, Turkey, has won numerous awards and has tattooed people from different countries around the world.
In a recent interview, Atalay shared his journey and experience in the world of tattooing. Atalay has always been passionate about art since his childhood, but his family did not support his dream of becoming a tattoo artist. In those days, being a tattoo artist did not have a good reputation, so his family saw him in the same way. However, Atalay’s passion for art never faded away, and he started tattooing his close friends while working at a company as a CNC operator. He later quit his job and opened his own tattoo studio with his friends, but this association did not last that long. After some time, he opened his AG Art Collective studio in 2012, which is still active in Izmir Bostanlı.
Atalay’s journey to becoming a successful tattoo artist has not been an easy one. He had to face many challenges and obstacles along the way, but he never gave up on his dream. Atalay has traveled to various countries, including Switzerland, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Austria, etc., and has won seven first-place awards at the Urkunde Tattoo Convention.
Atalay’s tattooing process involves taking a photo of the body part to be tattooed and starting the design process. The design must be unique, so he starts from scratch. After everything about the design and the client is okay, the process of tattooing begins. Atalay usually works in any style of realism, and his works usually last between 6 and 10 hours. After finishing the tattoo, he explains everything about the subsequent process and anything that the client has in mind.
Atalay takes hygiene very seriously, and almost everything he uses is disposable items except tattoo machines, lights, trays, and inks. He makes sure that everything around him is sterilized every morning and night.
Atalay affirms that he wants to continue with the same work ethic with which he came to consolidate his name in the world of tattooing. He puts all his effort and dedication into each of his jobs so that his clients feel satisfied with the decision of having chosen him to capture this type of art on their skin. His long-term goal is to put his name at the top of the tattoo world to be much more recognized in this world in which a lot of effort and dedication is needed to achieve his goals.
