About the Artist
As a Latino born in Tucson Arizona, I grew up surrounded by a deep culture of art and heritage. I always had a fascination in low-riders, graffiti art, and the massive murals of aztec warriors that decorated the walls of my favorite Mexican restaurants. As a kid, the highlight of my art life was when one of my drawings was featured in Lowrider Arte Magazine. I thought I had really made it.
When I was a kid, the first time I saw Bruce Lee I was in awe, and that opened up a whole new world for me into martial arts and The Way of the Samurai. The story line of fighting for justice and honor and the chance to do something good in the world was truly inspiring. Unlike all of the other comic book heroes who had superpowers, the Samurai was a real human who with hard work and diligence became masters of their craft.
Bushido is a Japanese word that describes the code of honor and morals developed by the samurai. At Bushido Studio I take the seven virtues of the samurai and incorporate them into my practice. Justice, Courage, Mercy, Respect, Honesty, Honor, and Loyalty are more than just words to me, they are a lifestyle that I pursue and hold with the highest respect.
About the Process
For me it is more than putting ink in skin but a way of life. All tattoos start with an idea, something that isn’t seen by anyone but the individual. That idea is brought to an artist in hopes of bringing that idea to a reality that will be seen by all.
Bushido is a way of life that affects every area. Pursuing the life of an artist isn’t relegated to just drawing or painting or creating but making sure that all other aspects of life are treated with respect, discipline, and time. In order to be excellent as an artist, I pursue excellence in all areas of my life: physical and mental health, spiritually, as a husband, and as a friend.
