Andre started his journey into the tattoo industry in 1992 in San Antonio Texas. Not being very stable at the time he bounced from one place to another, picking up what he could, when he could and credits not only the awesome old school artists he has had the chance to work along side, but his own determination to grow that brought him to the level of tattooing he is today. Largely self taught, Andre has had the pleasure of working in New Mexico, Texas, Arizona, Florida, Tennessee, Nevada, California, and Alabama. His travels have taken him across the country, coast to coast, more than once. He has always credited himself as being an artist, working with oils, acrylics, spray paint, signage, airbrushing and digital media. He furthered his artistic career in 2007 by attending The Phoenix Art Institute, Pittsburgh, majoring in Commercial Graphic Design. He specializes in full color cover ups. He sees no tattoo as impossible, only challenging. Father to a bunch of Band Geeks,,lol, Andre can be found usually drawing, inking it up, or cutting up with his kids when they come and see him.
