Przemek Shamack Malachowski believes good work always speaks for itself

One of the interesting things about my role as business adviser is the diversity of people and businesses I come into contact with.

One such person is Przemek Shamack Malachowski.

Shamack is one of the happiest businessmen I genuinely think I have encountered in the last 9 years assisting people in Blackpool to start a business.

To start at the beginning, I first encountered him several years ago when he was working as a tattoo artist at The Dragons Den in Blackpool. He explained it had always been his dream to own his own studio and run it to his standards, and surround himself with leading artists from around the world.

His story is one of someone who has progressed his passion into a business, something many try to achieve but often fail as they forget to implement sound business logic and ethics to the passion. Knowledge and passion alone do not guarantee success!

He began his career in 2008 and concentrates on black and grey, realism and colour work, however his passion lies in bio-mechanical. He is an award winning artist, recently winning “Best of Day” at the Nottingham Tattoo Convention in April 2016.

He shares his passion with people from around the world and is co-organiser of Tatcon Blackpool, which is the only tattoo convention in Lancashire, spanning 2 days of high quality artistry.

As you might expect from someone in his field, he does not have a pet rabbit, however, he has a Gother snake called Caeser!

Inkden have produced some excellent videos which are well worth a view. This one produced by his partner Anna.

Shamack has a lovely partner named Anna Paprzycka.

Anna is a laser specialist after receiving the highest available qualification in the UK organised by Lynton and certified by the University of Manchester school of Physics and Astronomy, and she also freelances in journalism, photographer, pr and advertising.

Smamack and Anna have also done a tattoo charity raffle for Trinity Hospice

Martin continues to improve his skill and technique by attending seminars held by the APP Association of Professional Piercers and is also a member of the UKAPP the United Kingdom Association of Professional Piercers.
