I have been interested in tattoos for as long as I can remember.  While vacationing in Brazil I got my first tattoo at the age of 13. After that, I started getting tattoos more often and by the age of 21 I knew that I wanted to start doing what I had admired so much. In 2009, I traveled to Argentina to buy my first set of tattoo equipment and then began practicing on my friends back home in Uruguay. The tattoo industry in Uruguay was not as developed as most other areas around so getting supplies was not always easy.

Self-taught from the beginning, I tried to attend every tattoo convention and seminar I could to learn from experienced artists. Over the next 7 years I progressed in my technique and began to develop my own style of linework.

In 2016 I decided to move to New York and was given the opportunity to work at a well-known shop in Manhattan. During my time there, I had the pleasure of meeting many tattoo artists from around the world who specialized in every tattoo style. I learned from them and exchanged knowledge that helped shape me into the artist I am today. After spending more than 4 years there I decided that I was ready to move forward and open a shop of my own which I had always dreamed of.

This is how Symmetry Ink NYC opened its doors in November 2020. A modern and clean, appointments only shop, located in Astoria, Queens.

At Symmetry Ink NYC, it is my goal to bring exceptional guest artists from all over the world who are experts in different tattoo styles. I hope that all of my old and new clients feel comfortable in this new studio and develop a lifelong addiction to your new artwork.
