Fuad began his creative career with the interests and ability to create using handworks, such as crafting furniture, sunglasses frames, and apparel. After experimenting with several mediums, he believed that he could express himself the most through tattoo arts.

His works portray his amusements in arts and culture with his unique character of traditional elements.
