Bio: I’m from Santa Ana California, I have been tattooing for two years and been drawing and painting since college. I know I am still young in this profession but I only aim to get better every day and learn from my peers. Some of my favorite artist are Jason Butcher, Jeremiah Barba, Nick Baxter, Nikki Norberg, Nikko, and Abey. I enjoy doing color and black and grey realism, as well as thinking of some surrealistic ideas to go with them as well. I look forward to getting better and finding my niche style of tattooing
I was born and raised in California my whole life. And as far as I can remember art has played a huge role in life. From drawing to painting to tattooing it has consume my life. I started tattooing late 2011 and as I started to tattoo I desired to master my skills in the craft. Leading to pursue an apprenticeship and learn more of the craft as well as becoming a better artist. Tattooing is an endless learning process in which I plan to learn as much as possible, not only as an artist but as a genuine person.
I was raised in O.C. most of my life. I received my first tattoo at the age of 17. I’ve always been in love with art. I focused my drawing style in realism, which motivated me to tattoo in the same form but I also enjoy tattooing other styles and incorporating different features into my work just to keep things interesting. I began tattooing in 2013 at a professional level. My ambition to learn more about this field led me to find an apprenticeship by some great artists around O.C. Carlos, also known as “Oather” taught me a lot about the professional view of the industry and what is essential to becoming a great artist like him.
