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.
