Before I became a tattoo artist my older brother is a tattoo artist as well. I kept watching him of what he’s doing and I got the idea how tattooing works & done. And one day I decided why shouldn’t I try it & do it too. So I started using his tools & gadgets for tattooing & my older brother caught me, he was upset but eventually he agreed & let me do it and taught me how to improve myself to be one of the respected artists in the tattoo industry.
My favorite to tattoo is Geometry Mandala Art. Though, I do variety of design it depends of what my client want or like. I am very flexible in the work of art that I can do for the satisfaction of my client because as we know tattoo is for long term it is permanent so I wanted to make sure they will be happy on what design they got in their bodies.
I have couple of sponsor that I am grateful that they’re helping me & supporting me in my talent & at the same time show off their great line of product; these sponsors are Bloodline Ink & Mic Tattoo Supply. Thank you.
I love what I do. My wife, kids, family & friends supports me to give me inspiration to keep doing what I’m doing. I had been practicing tattooing for over 20 years. I opened my own first studio in 2007 – Skin & Style Tattoo located in Lagro, Quezon City. Looking forward to grow my talent in this industry that I love, giving my effort & hard work but on the other hand enjoying life in the tattoo world.
