I was born in Caracas, Venezuela and raised in South Florida. My home is Atlanta, I've spent the past decade tattooing here. My entire tattoo career spans 16 awesome years. I love and respect this art form & hope to continue until I'm old and grey.
As a tattooer, I express myself by changing things up and staying on my toes. I work in both color/black and grey and tattoo in a variety of styles. My favorites being surrealism, realism, geometric, and psychedelic. My focus is large scale pieces.
People seek tattoos for a variety of reasons. Maybe it's to celebrate growth, to make a change, to remember, to let go, or just to have something that brings them a smile and makes them feel good. Whatever the reason, I like to use my artwork to help people express themselves.
Having a career in art gives me the freedom to explore and enjoy a variety of areas in life. As such, I have a wide range of interests. I'm intrigued by science and medicine, l'll build lego sets or make furniture, listen to everything from metal to jam bands, and read sci-fi to history. Having diverse interests, I'm open to the diversity of others. Whether we like the same things or not, all are welcome.
When I'm not at work I'm most likely to home spending time with my incredible wife and our gang of goofy rescues, which includes two cats and four dogs.
I grew up on the west coast and when I’m not in Atlanta you can find me living in Northern California nestled between a couple of my favorite forests hanging out with my two enormous pigs.
I spend as much of my free time outdoors as possible and don’t feel I’m at my best until at least 4 days out on the trail.
I was very lucky to have the experience of building a successful business in Atlanta that afforded me some time to reflect on what was important to me in my life and how I really wanted to spend each day.
After a year working with trail crews and state parks I decided it was time to give more of myself and my time to creating art. I came back to Atlanta to finally try my hand at tattooing under the tutelage of a good friend. I would estimate that I have about 85% of my body covered so tattooing is a path that most people expected me to take long ago. But, I’m grateful for the twist and turns up to this point.
I tattoo in color and black and grey. I like to draw very cute animals and very tough letters. Half the time I’m working in Atlanta, the other half of the time I’m self isolating in the woods. In short I am unconventionally balanced, but balanced all the same.
