Where shapes, lines and dots meet ink

The beauty of geometry right in your skin.

My work

My work is based on many kinds of geometry, using a mix of dotwork, blackwork and lines. Always trying to find the right balance between the customers ideas and my own touch.

From all kind of spirals and mandalas, to bold lines, negatives space and dots.

I use many different tattoo styles to achieve the desired look, depending on the placement and design of every tattoo.

I specialize in dotwork, playing with spacing and also grey tones to give all kind of depths and layered look to the final design.

I also like a lot to keep a high contrast in my line work, always trying to keep the use of bold and thin lines together for finer details, as well as thick borders in order to identify the shapes in the tattoo.

NamelessCity, Victoria, Dates to be confirmed

I'm a Chilean artist. Always had a love for drawing since I was a kid. I was often interested in the geometric world, but never really went any far into it. Not until I started tattooing.

About 3 years ago I decided to try tattooing, which was something I really loved and wanted to try. I started doing all kind of styles (mainly American traditional and fine line dotwork), until one day I tried some geometric tattoos and I really enjoyed the whole process of it. The designing, placing, doing and the final look.

Since then, I have been exploring the world of geometry, not only in tattoos but in all aspects; which helps find the right mind set for my work.

I have been in different tattoo studios during my career, met artists from different countries and have been getting a lot of experience from every place.

I'm personally a perfectionist when it comes to art, so you can always be sure that I'll do my best to achieve the perfect piece you've been looking for.

“Where there is matter, there is geometry.”

- Johannes Kepler

The geometry behind my tattoos

It all started on paper. At first I found my own way to produce mandalas and patterns from easy shapes/guides or from folding the paper in sections to achieve the right symmetries.

A lot was done by hand, patterns, mandalas, complete complex designs without the use of any technological device.

Now-days, with the help of the iPad and computer, designing tattoos is much easier and powerful than ever. I always make sure to show my customers the whole process of it, giving them the best results possibles using all the tools available. From paper to screen, from ideas to reality.
