I got my first tattoo at 16, tattoos have always fascinated me and my grandfather was very tattooed, he was my first inspiration.
I began to draw at an early age, I was always with paper and pencil in hand. I, basically, never stopped my self, I’ve only changed the means of expression.
At about 18 I bought my first tattoo magazine and, looking at some realistic tattoos by Robert Hernandez, one of the first tattoo artists to realize the realistic style,
I discovered that what I did with paper and pencil could be reproduced also on skin, that was when I decided what I wanted to do in life.
