I’ve been an artist for as long as I could remember. I was always the one in the back of the class sketching and doodling and getting in trouble from my teachers and parents for not paying attention in class.
My art has always been a passion in my life and has made me who I am today.
In my early 20’s, I created and illustrated my own comic book, where we printed and sold about 5000 copies. That’s when I discovered it was possible to turn my art into a living despite what everyone had told me over the years. At the age of 31, my wife and I took a leap and moved to Las Vegas to take up an apprenticeship. It was the best move I ever made and it has led me to the art that I feel I was born for. I have been tattooing for 13 years now, and have owned my own shops alongside my wife and family for 9 of those years.
Tattooing is not just something you do, it’s a lifestyle. It becomes who you are and I wouldn’t change it for the world. The experiences I have been blessed with throughout my journey in the industry are second to none. I enjoy tattooing clients from all around the world and hearing their stories on who they are and where they come from is just a bonus on top of doing my art.
“My clients are my #1 priority and I strive to give them the best piece of art possible, to where they can share their story with others by wearing it on their skin and be completely proud of it through their lifetime.“ – Christian Buckingham –
