Artur grew up in Badalona, a fishing town outside of Barcelona, Spain. When he was young, he was enrolled in a comic course and developed a passion for art. He wanted to pursue a career in visual art so he attended the instituto PAU Gargallo, an art high school and went on to JOSO de Barcelona for higher-level training in graphic design and advertising.
After concluding his studies he realized that this career path was not for him. While finding himself, Artur began painting murals and portraits and developed an interest in tattooing. As his affinity for tattooing grew, he found that he could combined his love of portraiture and tattoo and began practicing full time at the age of 26. At 29, Artur opened his first tattoo shop in Barcelona where he specialized in realistic black/grey and color tattoos.
Today, we are happy to have Artur join the family as a resident at our LA shop.
