Everyone has a story - places they've been, people they've met and pain they've suffered. Orlando tattoo artist JC wears his life experiences as art and wanted to share some of his stories and how they came to be illustrated in ink.
Growing up in South Beach, JC got his first tattoo when he was 16 in Miami. Even though it wasn't mainstream at the time, his father had tattoos so JC decided to go for it! Most of JC's tattoos have a traditional Japanese background that he finds meaningful. While doing his own tattooing apprenticeship, many of the tattoo artists he admired practiced this style - he also loves that this style of tattoo looks better with age.
