      30 years of tattoo experience

I opened the shop with my Brother Luis my best friend. After serving in the USMC I came back to Los Angeles with the goal of building a family-friendly shop where our guests feel safe and confident to do business with us. A place with plenty of privacy available if needed when tattoos are in intimate locations, and when privacy is what you are looking for. It will always be all about the customer experience for us here serving you at our studio.

My specialties are black and grey realism and portraits.

 I promise to exceed your expectations. 

I am a resident artist at Hollywood Stars Tattoo. I've had an extensive tattoo apprenticeship under Erik Gutierrez and have 15 years of tattoo experience. I especially enjoy tattooing abstract/free flowing tattoos and trash-polka tattoos. I also am well versed in tattoo concept design. I feel each tattoo is an extension of not only myself but my client as well, I look forward to working and growing with each client that I have the opportunity and pleasure to meet.

I have over 9 years of tattoo experience under my belt and am looking forward to many more. I taught for 5 years as a professor of perspective, design, and color theory at the Art Institute. I am the shop illustrator and your go-to guy if you need a one of a kind design drawn on the spot or drawn out for a later time for more intense designing. I am an expert in illustration composition. My specialties are fine line tattoos and freehand custom tattoo design.
