Andy Engel: Love and devotion meet the highest precision and perfectionism
Andy Engel is known as one of the world’s best tattoo artists for photorealism and attaches particular importance to precision, passion and attention to detail.
The native Bavarian was born in 1972 in the 180 soul village Tiefenstockheim in Bavaria, Germany.
Through the art and craft of his father, who worked as a master blacksmith and locksmith, he learned in his early days what craftsmanship means and how important reliability, responsibility, trust and quality are towards the customer, himself and his own company. These values still shape his work as a tattoo artist today.
“My parents taught me which values are important in life and that one should always be true to oneself, for which I am very grateful.”
In 2008 an affair of the heart came with the topic of nipple reconstruction
In 2008, after being diagnosed with breast cancer and the resulting unilateral mastectomy, a regular customer came to Andy and persuaded him to tattoo her a photo-realistic nipple. The result made the customer so happy that she sent the Bavarian Broadcasting Company to Andy in the studio to make the topic better known so that other women can also benefit from it.
Ten years later Andy Engel founded medbwk GmbH with Klaus Günter and Martin Siedler.
Right from the start with the support of the Medical Mission Clinic Breast Center Würzburg, in particular from Dr. med. Andreas Cramer as a cooperation partner with whose help Andy Engel at medbwk not only brings the topic closer to those affected by breast cancer, but also educates clinics in seminars on the topic of nipple tattoos. In addition, he does a lot of clarification with the health insurance companies in order to achieve reimbursement of costs for those affected.
