7) Karthik Benegre- Sculp Tattoo Studio, Bangalore
For Kartik, it was rather a different approach than many. He did some self-analysis and searched for something which he thought would give him inner happiness and inner purpose in life. All he wanted to be was content with what he does and rather come back to his roots.
His style is thus inspired by the folklore of his birthplace, Mangalore, where he also spent some time amidst the local artists who carved and painted and that is exactly what he imprints in his tattoo style too. Needless to say, he is a fan of contemporary style.
He snapped out of his corporate career to invest his time and energy in what he actually loves- Tattooing, in Bangalore. He was quite unstoppable
Karthik Bengre, presently, is an exultant founder and owner of Sculp tattoo studio in Bangalore which he opened in 2015. Naturally, he has his own unique style that is abstract and contemporary look. He also likes to amalgamate various other styles and genres in his tattoo designs. “Art is my soul food and I hit rock bottom to be where I am today, happy and content,” he says.

He loves to work with thick and sharp lines with a lot of dark ink or straight-up black ink.
Some of his designs spring from his creativeness and others from his interest in human anatomy. He gives great importance to the placement ideas as well.

Getting the right proportion and balance with on the body and the parts specifically is my priority.”

He likes to work on designs that are a combination of fine lines that are clean as well as raw. His idea of making a tattoo is for it to be as creative and illustrative as possible.
While he likes to add some fantastic elements to his designs, he also loves to do realism work. His favorite work till now? A space turtle that he is essentially proud of. In his words, “Really far too many to name but a few would be a space turtle I did, a Jack Skellington piece, a Cheshire Cat. I’m always on the lookout for volunteers for certain pieces I want to do. There are a Yoda and Joker on waiting if anyone’s interested, just saying.”

He says that he does not have a specific style but he loves working on abstract and geometric designs by which he modifies his client’s designs.
While he might not have a specific style, but he does offer a unique approach, he says, “giving more importance to composition and structure as it lays the main foundation and then builds on by adding details, effects, color or textures to make it aesthetically beautiful.”
He also says that a lot of his work is freehanded because you might not know what art can bring out and it is rather not predetermined. He loves to borrow from any art form and any culture that he comes across and this is what makes his abstract ideas most unique. He believes in following no guidelines
