From a very young age I started to feel curiosity about drawing and body modifications, but it was not until 2006 that I had the opportunity to take some piercing classes and that led me to learn and connect more with the world of tattooing. So in 2007 I started training as a tattoo artist, by that time I was surrounded by other artists who taught me the basic techniques. After practicing for a good time I got a job at one of the most important studios in my country, Mithos Tattoo.
I had the opportunity to get to Texas, where I participated in the Dallas Tattoo Expo. There I made a tattoo in collaboration with my friend and great tattoo artist in Texas, Quin Hernandez. We got the award for the best tattoo of the show. It was a location that inspired me, the tranquility, the weather, its people and the aptly named southern kindness. For these reasons I decided to try my luck and become part of the Dark Age Tattoo team, which is one of the most important studios in the state and the country.
It has been excellent to be able to nourish myself with many of them who have a lot to contribute to my experience, in addition to being able to share with them the knowledge that I have acquired throughout these almost 13 years of career.
