About The Instructor

Antonio Macko Todisco was born in Monopoli, in 1980. He lived and breathed art since he was a child, watching his grandfather painting, listening to classical music and drawing with him. During a trip in Asia, he bought his first tattoo machine out of curiosity, but it has been a choice which changed his life.

After a few months, Macko decided to give up what he was doing to pursue the world of tattoo. During his first visit to Los Angeles, in 1994, he bonded with the artistic scenario of the city: graffiti, cholo writing, gang symbology and the lowrider’s art. Despite not having a real apprenticeship, he has always looked to the Greats of the Chicano Art and the black & grey Californian scene, trying to snatch the codes and magic. All these elements are then reinterpreted with his sensibility, based on a solid academic culture.

He realized two flashbook about Chicano Art, and his works appear regularly in international publications. He takes part in several conventions all around the world, winning awards and honors for his personal black and grey. But the greatest award and honor for him is to create new work that people love.
