Tanya Swemmer is Cape Town born and bred. A Keen interest in tattoos and tattoo culture took hold in her teenage years and she acquired her first tattoo from Milo "Mr Lucky" Marcer on her 18th birthday in 2010. Tanya began apprenticing under Milo at Cape Town Tattoo in late 2013 while completing her diploma in Industrial Design at CPUT. Inspired by beauty, nature and the deviant in us all, Tanya's journey as a tattoo artist has only just begun, and in the past couple of years has grown into one if not the best young talent in the industry
First generation Italian, Milo “Mr. Lucky” Marcer lives and works in Cape Town, South Africa. After studying fine Art at Wits Tech, Milo worked as a designer and Illustrator in the Advertising industry, all the while tattooing.
Milo has devoted 30 years to the art of tattooing, has won awards and has been published in several local and international magazines. Milo has worked all over Europe and the United States. Milo is very inspired by the old tattoo masters like Bert Grimm, Sailor Jerry, Doc King, Don Ed Hardy and many others, however he always retains his illustrative roots and with his creative twist, all his images remain intriguing. It would be wrong to pigeonhole his style as it is ever evolving and changing, transforming into fabulous works of art in his clients skin.
