my style of tattooing is jewel tattoos and scar coverage and I give new meaning to people’s lives with the art of tattooing
Why did you start to get tattooed?
Before becoming a tattoo artist I studied law for 3 years , but as soon as I got my first tattoo I fell in love with art , with being able to leave a little bit of myself in each drawing and in each person and I dropped out of college to dedicate myself only to tattooing , my first tattoo was on my mother , and i loved doing it , nowadays i try to make exclusive pieces for my clients based on their stories and what they want to represent with my art and also with jewelry i can create an art that ends up empowering my clients because they are inspired by jewelry , diamonds , crystals etc
