Ever since I was little I've always had a passion for art, from a young age I would spend the majority of my time surrounded by pens, paper, scissors and glue making whatever came to mind.

My first ever teacher believed so strongly that I would make something of myself due to my artistic nature, that she kept a picture I drew so she could make some money from it. Sorry to disappoint!

Aside from my love of art I like to keep active, still playing football with the lads I grew up with. I'm a bit of a film buff, my go to genres are horror (which I can only enjoy on my own as my wife's a bit of a sissy), action films and superhero movies. Batman's my guilty pleasure but that’s no secret. Music plays a huge part in my life, if you like rock n roll we'll get along just fine. My guitars however have been neglected and are now collecting dust ever since I became a Dad!

I have been happily married for 6 years to my very talented wife who is a whizz at wedding photography (give her a shout if you're getting hitched - link below). We have three little terrors who are on the whole, well behaved, that said I solely blame them for the amount I have aged in recent years. 

As soon as I was old enough to be tattooed I was fascinated by the art, spending the majority of my time in the chair quizzing the tattoo artist. Since 2012, between other jobs I started developing my skillset as a tattooist, pushing myself harder and setting bigger challenges to improve my overall execution. As of 2020, I took the plunge and became a full time tattooist. I tackle pretty much any style, that said I love black and grey and photo realism!


I take pride in the work that I do and in the long-term relationships that I build with my clients. I am a firm believer in working hard, working together, and having fun along the way! Explore my portfolio, and feel free to get in touch with any questions.

My love of drawing started when I was able to pick up a pencil. Since I was little, I got into trouble with numerous teachers as I did nothing but draw on the tables, the margins of the books, my friends' arms, the walls... anything but pay attention! After a few years of working as a primary school teacher, I decided to take a leap of faith and dedicate my life to creating art for others. 


I moved to the UK in 2014 looking for a better future, and I can happily say I found it! I am a proud Spaniard and you will probably hear me brag about my hometown and complain more about the weather than most!


I love drawing florals, small characters (the nerdier, the better), cute animals and everyday objects! I'm a manga/anime passionate, and I'm also into true crime, twisted stories, time travel and horror films, videogames, Asian food, Rubik's cubes, alpacas, social activism and drag queen shows. A weird mix? Yep, that sounds like me!

Hi, let me introduce myself, I’m 24 years of age and was born in portugal. 

I’m a very chilled person, I love rap and soul music, love movies like Scarface, Goodfellas and movies of that genre. I’m a fan of sports, mainly football.
If I’m not in the studio, I’m at home spending time with my family. I’m a dad of two beautiful girls. My girlfriend that has always been my rock, showing unlimited love and support, even when I watch football for days in a row.


I’ve been doing art as long as I can remember, I have always been obsessed with the artistic process. Always been very eager to learn and pursue my dream as an artist.

I made a big decision when I was 18. I got myself a job and decided to further my studies in England. I came by myself, no family with £200 to my name and got myself into a fine art course in a university. 


I was a big fan of the show Miami ink, that’s where it sparked my passion towards tattooing. Since then I wanted to translate into that medium. That’s when I started studying the game and I fell in love with the fine line black and grey style of tattooing. I self taught myself how to do lettering because I just fell in love with it. I started going to conventions and always learning things from other artists. Done my apprenticeships, worked in studios with big artists and have been building myself from there.

I’m proud of never giving up, it wasn’t easy, but I’m now happy to be a part of the Interstellar Ink team. 

Can’t wait to meet you all and bring your vision into reality.
