Fede was born and grew up in Sevilla, Spain. He always loved art from an early age and was particularly drawn to Alphonse Mucha’s work during the art nouveau period in history.
He studied Illustration and watercolor at the Sevilla Academy of Arts and afterwards took on a two year apprenticeship with the one and only Manu Raccoon.
In 2014, Fede opened Santa Paciencia Tattoo in his hometown of Sevilla and has been honing his skills and perfecting his craft. We are proud to have Fede join us at our NYC shop as part of the family.
HOW DO I BOOK AN APPOINTMENT WITH MANU CRUZ?
Once you have chosen your artist there are three ways to make an appointment. You can either stop by the shop, send an email, schedule through our Booking Now! Section on the web or give us a call at 347-987-4304. If you’re sending us an email please be sure to include the size, placement, description of your design, and any reference material you may have, as well as a preferred day of the week for your appointment. Please be aware that weekend appointments are the most sought after. If you are interested in a cover-up or rework of an existing tattoo please include a picture of that as well.
