I was into graffiti during junior high and high school. I spent most of my free time scribbling on paper. I majored in photography at college. I could only stand the profession my diploma enabled me to do for 3 months.

I was a shop assistant at the first tattoo studio where I worked for 3 years. I shut myself into work on my drawing skills for a while. But I also needed to earn a living. I was either going to get a 9-5 or dedicate myself to tattooing.

I made a connection between my college degree and what I wanted to do. I drew the poster shots of a lot of movies I liked – which got a lot of traction – and managed to transfer them onto people’s skins. I improved on my original idea and started working with souvenir photos people took.

I dub my style as Retro Minimal.

It’s an indescribable feeling to tattoo photographs taken in different parts of the world at different times. For example, I have tattooed a family portrait taken in Mexico in the ‘60s as well as one of a family in the US in the ‘80s…

I work with small spaces and minimize details, keeping the essentials, to transfer these memories on to the skin.

I love how there are no facial expressions in any of these because it makes you think about what their faces WOULD have been

This is the only one I came to see. Dead last! And that was just to check if the perspective was what made the business end of that Winchester look weird. And thankfully it was. I could have this.
