  • What sparked your love of art?:

  • How’d you end up becoming a tattoo artist?
    My brother David Rairan was a very talented and well known Colombia based artist. He would try to push me into tattooing along with him but I was more into the music aspect of art so I never really thought twice about actually tattooing. He passed away in 2003, and 10 years after his death I started to feel a connection from him that inspired me to start using the skin as a canvas where I could give the infinite mark to others. I feel that I owe my love of tattooing to him after he convinced me to start while both in his physical form and spiritual form. I also want to give thanks to George Martinez of Art Ink Collective (Toronto, Canada) for teaching me the basics of tattooing when I first started.

  • Most memorable tattoo you’ve done:
    A metatron’s cube in sacred geometry on the back with the seed of life.

  • Have you ever tattooed yourself?:
    Yes. The third tattoo that I ever did is a geometric shape above my left ankle and my right lower arm half sleeve.

  • Any tattoos you refuse to do because of any reason like the idea/placement?:
    I try to not accept to do any tattoos that involve guns and/or money (sign or bills).

  • How do you handle negative feedback?
    I take it constructively.

  • What signature style do you think you excel in?
    My own alien cosmic designs (channelings) & sacred geometry.

  • What has been the biggest change in your life since you’ve became more popular?
    Feeling good by seeing how people want my art on their bodies. It is something that creates a powerful connection between me and them since they’ll be carrying my mark forever while they’re still in the physical body.

  • What moment so far in your career that you think you will never forget?
    The first time I ever put the needle on someone’s skin.
  • If you were not a tattoo artist, what would you be?
    Pure energy.

  • Any other art related hobbies?
    Painting, drawing, drumming, meditation, and music.
  • Hobby outside of anything art related:
    Everything in life is art for me just like the Mayans who often referred to time as art.

  • Short term goal:
    Being here, now.

  • Long term goal:
    Expand into my art/tattooing/music & consciousness.
