Ive been rockin walls for a long time . and i have been tattooing for at least 11 years im not the best but i get my job done. tattooing is for me an awsome expierience for me as well my client ideas always flow beautifuly even if some clients get the stupidest shit i can imagine but im not here to judge . i got into tattooing really being honest because i was broke as shit . i had a buddie give me a hand and teach me the ropes . berdugo and dny 79. i got some basics but the real teaching came in st thomas with luc zietek and geeno mancuso (rip) i learned a little more from my boy bee from nyc he put a new meaning to quick and solid lolol much respects to my mentors and thanks !

the bodega was a candy dream come true. Apple Now and Laters, Watermelon Jolly Ranchers, Chico sticks, Cherry Chan, Boston Baked Beans, Peanut chews, quarter waters and oh yes, Funyuns! . in the summers the nuyo ricans playin congas and listening to salsa classics . inside with some money you can play el numerito with cheo! or get a lucy for 10 cents . fucked up when you gotta go to the store for mom with those food stamps . funny how once i stepoff the plane im in the bodega !
My family came to the bronx in the late 50s but almost all in the high brigde section of the bronx and webster ave. i cant complain kids in pr had trees to climb on ours was back flippin on 10 old matreses or playin skelzie , stick ball in the summer or steppin on snow covered shit. egg fights on halloween , or flying pigeons . getting vamped was a every day ordeal if you didnt look around the esquina ! you'll get got! IF YOU WANTED THE LATEST SHOES ! SON ! go to jewmans in southern blvd . dont go alone hahaha it was rumored that he sent dudes to get his sneakers back after you paid for them ! OUR NEIGHBORHOOD HAD AT LEAST 20 TO 30 CREWS.
