I reign from southern California, with the Inland Empire being my old stomping grounds. After that, I was honored to become a Ranger in the mighty 2nd Ranger Battalion in Ft. Lewis, WA. Once I accomplished those goals I quickly rekindled my love for art. I love tattooing. It's what I've always known I'd be doing since I was very young. Art has been a pretty big deal to me my whole life. It was my escape from everything. I've been obsessed ever since.

Hi, I'm Gio.


Outside of tattooing I enjoy riding my motorcycle, listening to music, going to the gym, being in nature, and hanging out with my beautiful wife going to live music shows or experiencing new things within the Pacific Northwest. I am also a huge animal lover and love spending time with my two dogs and my two cats. If I wasn’t doing tattoos I'd be trying to get involved with wildlife conservation.

I prefer Black and grey tattoos more along the illustrative traditional spectrum. I Also have a deep respect for all things American Traditional.
