Spectrum 19 (2012)
The New Masters of Fantasy 2005
The New Masters of Fantasy 2004

I was born in Budapest, 1974. I work as a freelance illustrator, graphic designer, and concept artist since 1997.
I work for several publishing houses, game developers, and advertising agencies worldwide. I mostly illustrate roleplaying and collectible card games like Dungeons & Dragons, Warhammer, Warhammer 40,000, A Game of Thrones, Skylanders, etc. In 2004 and 2005 I was voted among The New Masters of Fantasy artists and had been exhibited twice in the NMoF – A Collection of the Year’s Best Fantasy Art. I often work with my colleague Richard Vass, one of our artworks has been selected to appear in Spectrum 19 in 2012.

In 2012 I started a career as a tattoo artist in the word famous Dark Art Tattoo in Budapest. From 2014 January I was a permanent guest artist at Pendragon Tattoo, Germany (Heilbronn, Neuenstein, and Markelsheim). In 2015 October I moved to Oslo, Norway, and work here as a full time tattoo artist at 1969 Tattoo Gold. In my free time I also make illustrations.

"With all the experience and professionalism of a consummate artist, Peter Tikos is an absolute pleasure to work with. Peter first caught my attention through the slush-pile of all things, and has since proven himself over and over to be an absolute pro. A disciplined artist with a solid grounding in the fundamentals of creating world-class art, Peter continues to take direction well and prove himself a top-tier artist even under tight deadlines and heavy work-loads. His work is exceptional and his unique visual storytelling continues to stop fans in their tracks. I look forward to watching his career for a long time to come."

Thank's for the Watch mate.

My son experienced a chest burn at one yrs old. He is now 18. The doctor oddly advised seeking a tattoo artist who specializes in burns as a Beautiful solution. Can you assist us?

Unfortunately I don't know an artist expert in this kind of tattoos. Try to google, I hope you will find one.

Love your art.

Quite a few of your art is marked as licensed under Creative Commons, is that a mistake, or is that truly the case? If yes, awesome!

Thank you very much.

It's just a mistake, sorry. I should go through all the pictures and check licenses :P

Alright, your art is still awesome even if I can't use it!

What's your position for using art you didn't sell to others for fan non-commercial project (in that case D&D 5e homebrew, fanmade content for that game)
