Skin Design Tattoo
Specializes in Black & GrAy Realism
IN LAS VEGAS NEVADA
Angel first started tattooing in 2012 during an apprenticeship at Jose Lopez’s Low Rider Tattoo. What first began as an interest quickly became passion. Angel often says, “I’ve always had a big interest in art, but the medium of tattooing had a much stronger effect on my life (black and gray tattooing in particular).” Born and raised in Santa Ana, California, he never had a formal introduction to tattoos, though some of his family members had them. During his short career, he says inspiration is never hard to find with artists such as Jose Lopez, Robert Pho, and Fernie Andrade, who continue to set the bar higher and show upcoming artists like himself what hard work and dedication can achieve. Angel continues to grow in his experience with black and gray realism and still doesn’t consider himself to be near the peak of his journey. When asked about what motivates him, he had this to say: “The day I decided to truly dedicate my life to tattooing and my career as an artist, everything else went out the window. I look at my short journey and realize I have a long way to go and a lot to learn, though I am ecstatic to see what’s ahead. I’ve come to realize that not everyone will agree with what you choose to do, which makes me appreciate those who support and encourage me that much more. I am very thankful for my wife, my two children, my mother and father for being so supportive. Thank you to my uncle and biggest fan, Albert Lopez (R.I.P.) for always believing in me. I could not be any happier to be where I am today alongside the Skin Design family. Lastly, a big thank you to Robert Pho for giving me the opportunity to work under the same roof as some of my favorite artists.”
