Pete has always loved drawing. Upon visiting his first tattoo shop he was amazed. The walls were covered with the kind of things he had always sat around drawing. At the time he was eighteen years of age, and to be honest his parents weren't exactly thrilled with the idea of him becoming a tattoo artist, art school was the decided outcome. After attending Columbia College Chicago and several years working at the family business Pete finally got the opportunity to chase his dream career. He was offered an apprenticeship and has been honing his craft since. Pete has been tattooing in San Diego for years and has now created a fun yet sophisticated environment for expressive people to come and adorn themselves with fine art.
