I’m inspired by art, and art comes in all media. From oil paintings to nature, I find inspiration everywhere I walk, but if I had to mention just one thing, it has to be my family. They are the ones that have stood by me since day one. In terms of artists, I’m influenced by artists from different periods. Back in the day guys like Filip Leu, Paul Booth, Robert Hernandez, Tom Renshaw, Jack Rudy and Kore Flatmo inspired me as a tattoo artist. Now when you talk in terms of today’s artists, guys like Bob Tyrrell, Tommy Montoya, Chente Rios, Fernie Andrade, Brian Gonzales, Chuey Quintanar, and Carlos Torres are amongst a few of the artists that inspire me.
