Skin Design Tattoo Artist
IN ORANGE COUNTY
Being born and raised in Modesto, California there was never a shortage of street art and Chicano style influences. I grew up seeing all the older guys from my neighborhood completely covered head to toe in black and grey tattoos and remember thinking I wanted nothing more than to be like them. Summers after school were spent working in the fields just so I could make enough money to buy a knock off tattoo kit off of eBay. As this obsession with tattoo culture grew, I begin spending all my time around the local tattoo shops, hoping someone would take me under their wing.
In 2009 I begin my apprenticeship under Rabbit at Lucky Rabbit tattoos. I officially begin tattooing in 2011 and it’s been an amazing 7 years. Originally, my interests leaned towards a more neo-traditional style up until a couple years ago when I realized I still had a lot of Chicano style influences in my art. Thus, I ended up completely switching over to black and grey. Around that time, I moved to Honolulu with $500 in my pocket, hopeful and unsure. I spent the first few years living off tourists and walk-ins, slowly building my clientele which has brought me to today.
