Pietro Sedda has been making waves with his “melancholic,” surrealist tattoos, but it hasn't always been smooth sailing for the Italian artist. He first started tattooing 15 years ago out of pure financial necessity, despite initially hoping to be a fashion designer. Now, however, Sedda has fully embraced his talent as a tattoo artist—and so has the rest of the world. He is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after artists in Europe.
