I was born in Lima, Peru, in 1976. As far as I remember, I actually learned to tattoo by myself in a slow process of apprenticeship, while a parrallel career as a graphic designer at the main art school in Lima, Peru. I have around eight years being a professional tattoo artist, and I have two tattoo shops in Lima, Peru. I’m currently living in the states, pretty much travelling everywhere, heehee, doing many conventions and guest spots and appearances. I have recieved influences from many artists ( I learn from everybody! ) – but the one person who has influenced me the most, is my grandfather Jose Alcantara La Torre. I never met him, but I feel his art on me.
