Custom tattooing and art
Video of me doing a camelback mountain tribute tattoo on a friend.
I've been into art since I was kid, I grew up drawing and tracing whatever I could when I could. My first artistic influences were driven by the Lowrider Gangster lifestyle and prison art. I became interested in tattooing in my early teen years,I tattooed a little bit with a homemade Machine. It didn't really go anywhere because lack of knowledge and proper mentoring. Fast forward to 2009, after working whatever jobs for years, I wanted to persue tattooing so I started drawing again and bought a tattoo machine and tattoo supplies. After practicing on myself and some willing family and friends I knew I needed to get with someone that can learn from. Soon after, I came across a tattoo artist by the name of Thea Fear I hit her up and the rest is history. Along the way I've learned a lot, but as a artist It's always progressive and indefinite how far you can take your artistic ability and success. I put myself into every tattoo I create from the design to the placement. I believe tattooing is more than just creating a piece of art on skin, it's a unique type of meditation a therapeutic process for myself and the person on the receiving end. My relationship with art has gone full circle, from a childhood hobby to a rewarding career. I feel very fortunate to be able to make a living doing something I am very passionate about.
