I got my first glimpse into the world of tattooing at the tender age of six. Mom, an accomplished artist herself, approved of any artistic endeavors her children decided to pursue, was fully supportive, though she always warned us about the sacrifices of an artistic career. At 17 I began my journey as an apprentice at Baboo Tattoo in Old San Juan, P.R. After a grueling two-year apprenticeship, traveling by bus across Puerto Rico, I lost contact with my mentor and was forced to figure out a lot of techniques on my own. I spent some time learning from people I admired in different art mediums, looking for inspiration at every turn and looking to learn as many techniques and styles possible. Now, 19 years later, I am as in love with my art as I ever was. I have earned everything and have been given nothing. I have become a well-rounded artist and all around goof ball. I support my family and have a great time in other mediums as well: drawing, graphic design, painting and martial arts.
I work full time at the Crofton, MD location and I prefer to do custom tattoos of any style. Stop by and keep me busy!
