Despite being one of the most in-demand tattoo artists working today, if you were to have sought out Balazs Bercsenyi several years ago, you would have found him washing dishes in a London restaurant. The native Hungarian, who now boasts more than 250,000 Instagram followers and a client roster that includes numerous bold-faced names, was “discovered” when another tattoo artist encountered him drawing the intricate, fine line designs that he today adorns to the bodies of a select few. With a simple “You should become a tattoo artist!” uttered by his newfound friend, Balazs quickly found himself on a trajectory that would propel him to the top of his industry and into a coveted position at the renowned Bang Bang studio in Little Italy. Now, with a year-and-a-half of NYC living under his belt, Balazs is making a home in Williamsburg. Ahead, he gives 6sqft a tour of his 1,150-square-foot Brooklyn apartment where bohemian vibes and his penchant for organic forms echo throughout.
