Stephan Abela (st.grimm_tattoo)

Tattooing since 2011, Stephan’s career started in Essex, London. Then, he moved back to Malta and opened Modern Tribe Tattoo studio in 2012.

His passion for drawing developed at and early age, from which he expanded his interest into different art forms. His first introduction to the world of tattoos was at 14 years old, and ever since, tattoo art has been his main focus in life.

Experimenting with different techniques, Stephan developed his own style in black & grey photorealism, fine line black-work, and full-colour new school tattoos.
