Mario Rieger is a multi-talented artist. Worldwide known for his entertaining showacts based on bodybuilding and streetdance, Mario now focusses his artistic talent on Tattoo Art. Now the human body is his favorite surface for realizing his beautiful and outstanding artworks.
Since 1986 I am in the Showbusiness. First I got booked as a Breakdancer for dance events. When I started Bodybuilding and competed at championships, it was clear which way I would go. Doing a combination with elements of Bodybuilding, dancing, Martial Arts and acting I created my Showacts to an entertaining experience. I play Characters like the Terminator, Wolverine, Ironman, Predator etc. After national shows and a couple of TV-Broadcasts came my breakthrough to international level. For example I was engaged five times for the Mr. Olympia weekend in Las Vegas. I also entertained twice at the Arnold Schwarzenegger Classics in Columbus Ohio. At the worldwide biggest Fitness Expo, the FIBO Germany, I performed 25 years in a row. 2010 I participated in the german TV show “Supertalent”.
As an Illustrator I got well-known through my hyperrealistic Pencil-Drawings. Besides doing Portraits of Humans and Animals I created Company Logos, Corporate Designs or worked on huge Paintings for Expo Decoration.
2005 I started my professional career as a tattoo artist, which is my main activity until today. Since 2011 I run my own tattoo studio, meanwhile located in my home village Fichtenberg, Germany. I am an Allrounder tattooing many different styles. Of course my favorite is realistic Black & Grey. 2019 I appear as an expert in Cover–Ups working for a TV beauty-show.
Mario works as professional tatto-artist since 2005. His tattoo studio is located in Fichtenberg, a small village about 50 km away from Stuttgart, Germany.
