Tattooing for over two decades, Çınar started by making his own machines before tattoo equipment was available in Turkey.  Since then, he has expanded his skills with a Fine Arts degree from İstanbul's leading arts university, Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University, and continues to work as one of İstanbul's most prominent Tattoo Artists.   After working at various tattoo shops in Etiler, Bebek, etc. , he opened his own studio in the heart of İstanbul's fashion district, Nişantaşi.  The spacious 3-floor layout includes an art gallery and workspace, as well as a music recording studio.

Çınar, though well-versed in many styles of tattooing, prefers abstract black and color works that replicate the energy and feel of oil paintings.  He argues that the movement and expressionist nature of this style connects to the true nature of a tattoo: to become one with the physical body by following it's natural lines and curves, and to energize the soul of the wearer through color and movement.
