When did you start tattooing? I started in 1993. What was your first shop experience like? It was pretty grueling and hard-core! Long hours and very few days off, paying my dues to learn and gain my skills. I definitely got worked like a workhorse—and it got me to where I am today.

What year did you start tattooing? I started tattooing in 2008 at Sacred Art Tattoo in Tucson, Arizona. How did you get into tattooing? I went to prison for a while when I was young and started drawing to pass the time. Eventually me and my cellmate, and best homie to this day, learned to tattoo and started tattooing when we were 19.

How long ago did you start tattooing? I started tattooing in 2001, making a shift from graffiti to tattoos. It always caught my attention, the type of bond those two types of art shared. How would you describe your style of tattooing? When I started, Japanese caught my attention; there was a click.

What year did you start tattooing? I started tattooing in 2007. I was 19 at the time and eager to learn realism. How did you first get into tattooing? I first got into tattooing because I wanted a career in the art field. I wanted to continue my hobby at the time, which was realism art. As long as I can remember I’ve always been drawing.

What year did you start tattooing? 2010. How did you get into tattooing? I got into tattooing around the time I left school. I was trying to find a job in art, though I never actually studied it at school. I knew a lot of guys in bands who were getting tattooed, so I had seen a lot of their tattoos fresh and started noticing this form of art as a career route.

What year did you start tattooing? I got my first equipment in 1984. I tattooed a lot of garbage in the '80s because I had no clue what I was doing. Occasionally someone will pop into the shop with something I did from the '80s—it’s funny, more often than not they won’t let me touch it.

What year did you start tattooing? I started tattooing at the age of 20. I completed a traditional three-year apprenticeship at Artistic Encounter under Billyjack. Your work is a mix of styles—you mix realism with traditional and neotraditional, all in one piece.

What year did you start tattooing? 2003. How would you describe your style? I’m heavily influenced by the Dutch/ Flemish tradition. I feel that implying much of the tattoo rather than directly stating it gives the viewer somewhat of a conversation that they can have when looking at a piece of work.

What made you want to get your first tattoo? Just wanted to carry things I liked and that were a part of me at all times. Do you still have your first tattoo? Yes, I still have my first one. What was it? My last name—Prieto— down my right tricep. When did you start collecting seriously?

The Louisville Villain Arts show this May was less than conservative, despite being on the fringes of the Bible Belt. The entertainment included a live human suspension show and a lady “kissing” a chainsaw. Freshly Inked has been touring with Troy Timpel’s legendary Villain Arts shows this year—and we have been loving them all.
