My name is Teena Pho and I’m currently apprenticing under my husband, Robert Pho.
I was born in the Philippines and raised most of my life in Southern California where me and Robert met in high school. After raising three kids, I finally landed this long awaited opportunity to start tattooing. I’ve always been into tattoo art and got my first tattoo from Robert in 1996. Ever since then I’ve always wanted to become a tattoo artist but unfortunately got too busy with life. Watching Robert go through several shops finally as of late has built a 4,000 sq ft facility that has enabled the opportunity for artists and apprentices like myself a home to learn and grow. I love lettering and Japanese art. My focus in tattooing is to study in these two genres and hopefully one day to develop my own style and contribute to the legacy of quality at Skin Design.
