Joshua Gomez


Joshua Gómez was born in the valley of San Cristobal in 1989. Son of a topographer and a housewife, both parents Venezuelans, he spent his days between caricatures and drawing characters for fun.

His love for the art transformed with the support of his mother when she motivated him to take classes at the center of plastic arts “Valentín Hernández Useche”; taking classes for several years, he then decided to abandon drawing for music in his adolescence.

Years later, he stops at a tattoo studio of an old friend, Gilbert Gutiérrez, to whom he talks about his interest for the art of tattooing, Gilbert had been a tattoo artist for a while, offering Joshua a learning experience. The only experience Joshua had had with tattoos were the inez of gangs, prison tattoos and some that he had seen on his friends, such as that he didn’t even have a single tattoo himself. Either way, he grabbed a machine and started tattooing soon after…

“I grew between arts and tattoos saved my life” says Joshua Gómez.

At the age of 20, he participates in his first exposition, where he doesn’t land in the finalists and this encourages him to improve. He travels to Bogotá – Colombia where he shares with and learns from great artists and comes back to his hometown with new and fresh knowledge. After only a year, Joshua did a tattoo that would change his career forever – a color portrait of Dark Maul from the successful movie franchise Star Wars. This was his first colored portrait with which he lands to participate in the Portrait Contest in the Expo Tattoo Táchira of 2010 and takes home the award for “Event’s Best”. This would be one of the many awards he would collect in the following years, but it was that portrait that put him on the map. Thanks to this, he is now known and recognized as a Realism Artist.

In the midst of his rising career, he has started in his own tattoo studio Ötzis C.a. “I have realized that many of my customers travel from different places to get a tattoo” he says “I want my clients to feel special and know that I appreciate them, I just want to give them the best of me as a person and as an artist”.

Today, Joshua is very grateful for the love and support from his clients, friends and family. Even to this day he continues to learn from every single detail and from great artist who are now his friends. He spends his life dedicated to tattoos traveling through the world and sharing with his closest ones.

Hi my name is Tibor `Tibi` Szalai, I`m a tattoo artist born in Hungary, but now working and living in Munich/ Germany. I`m tattooing for around 13 years now without any apprenticeship – it was all learning by doing. Originally I was a normal painter not even thinking about tattooing, but already interested in drawing and art (besides painting walls in a bright white.
15 years ago a buddy of mine asked me to try tattooing, cause he knew I was good in those art things. To this day, I never thought about tattooing, but from this moment, it was all i could think about. So 2 years later, when I got my first salary, I instantly bought a tattoo machine. Now I was tattooing as a hobby besides working as a painter, until I got so much clients, that I could live from only tattooing. Until 2010 I worked in Hungary, until a old friend of mine asked me to come for a guest spot to the shop in Munich where he was working at. They were so happy with my work, and I was feeling so comfortable there, that I moved there in 2011 and now I am a resident artist in this shop.
I am traveling all around the world for some guest spots and conventions and I already won some prizes in Frankfurt (Germany), Zwickau (Germany), Curacao, Transylvania, India, Borneo, Vienna (Austria), Budapest (Hungary) and Liechtenstein for example. In general I am specialized in doing realistic tattoos for around 4 years and started using Bishop Rotary machines around 3 years ago, which totally put my work on another level. But if there is a cool idea I am open for every kind of tattoo, like biomech, comic, 3D etc.
So this is my story, and if you are wondering why I have no tattoo yet, but a small tear on my finger: I had simply no time for it til now :) But let`s see what the future brings.

Edgar Ivanov


My name is Edgar Ivanov and I am a tattoo artist based in “Old London Road Tattoos ” in London,Uk
I was born in 1987 in Cesis, Latvia. My Dad had some old tattoos from the army, and him, being my hero, I tried to copy him as much as I could, so I used to draw on my arms and go to school looking like that. Not long after, I was drawing on everybody in my class.

That interested me so much, that wanting to take this to the next level, led me to make my first tattoo in 2004.
After that I continued tattooing, while learning and gathering all possible information about tattooing techniques, whenever I had a chance.
Drawing and art itself has always been an important part of my life, as it has been an interest of mine since I remember myself.

In 2008 I moved to London, where I undertook tattooing on professional level.
Mostly I tattoo black and grey realism, but I am always open to new things!

I am happy to say that I firstly think of my job as my passion and I really love what I do and put all of myself in every tattoo!

My name is Zero, I work at Vatican Studios in Orange County California. I’m a formally trained fine artist and illustrator turned tattoo artist. My style is a blend between my two mentors: Franco Vescovi’s west coast black and grey portraits and Alexis Vaatete’s dark surrealism. The outcome is a dramatic style that is rich in depth and realism. The majority of my work describes the human form realistically rendered with surreal additions. My influences come from my background in fine art as well as graffiti “street art”. I borrow my inspiration from such artists Caravaggio, Chuck Close with flavoring of Greg Simkins and Ron English. I enjoy and respect all forms of tattoos from Traditional Japanese to Americana. I am blessed to be working at Vatican Studios with some amazing artists and friends. I look forward to continuing my knowledge in art and pushing my skills for tattooing and painting

Andrea Pallocchini


I was born in 1974 in a small town near Rome. I am autodidactic. I’ve been tattooing since 1994 and painting a few months later. At the beginning I started working at home and in a serigraphy. From 2000 to 2008, I worked in a tattoo-shop called Sunskin Tattoo, and after that I opened my own studio, called “FourX”, a mix between tattoo studio and atelier paintings. Right now I only join a few conventions like the “London Tattoo Convention”, “Le Mondial du Tatuage de Paris” and the “Florence Tattoo Convention”. After 20 years working, my priority is giving an artistic touch to the tattoo, mixing up oil painting and the tattoo’s graphic lines; all of this is now possible by using high quality’s materials and machines.
