Adrian, also known as “Shorty,” is an award-winning tattoo artist which started his tattooing career in 2000, professionally since 2004. He is self taught, but is still learning, with many great artists influencing and enriching his experiences as an artist. Adrian was blessed to have opened “Under the Skin Tattoo Studio”, a West Los Angeles-based studio, in 2006. He has also been fortunate enough to have appeared in music videos with Baby bash , Lil Jon, and People Under the Stairs, just to name a few. He has also been featured in various publications such as PAIN Magazine, Flash Magazine, Swagg News Magazine, and URB.com
Since then, he is currently tattooing at Ink Fiend Art Tattoo in the city of Alhambra. You can check out their website www.inkfiendart.com
Adrian puts special emphasis on keeping a clean and sterile work environment. All equipment is single use and disposable. His up-to-date certification for blood borne pathogens, first aid, and CPR training are displayed in the studio. All various types of tattoo work are catered to. From color, to black & gray, to portraits, he can handle just about anything you throw at him. The bigger the challenge, the better. Adrian strives to improve his craft every day. The client is always encouraged to be a part of the design process. This way everyone leaves with a one-of-a-kind design which is unique to the individual.
In addition to tattoos, if you have an idea for something else to be customized, bring it in. From shoes, MPCs, skateboards, t-shirts, anything can be used as a canvas. Thank you for your time and consideration. If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact Adrian.
