What year did you start tattooing? I started tattooing in August 2010. How did you get into tattooing? Art has always been a part of my life. I saw that lots of tattoo artists had incredibly defined and amazing original styles, and I realized that they were literally just selling their own art to people in their skin.

What year did you start tattooing? 2003. How did you get into tattooing? I have always aspired to be a tattoo artist; because of personal reasons I put that dream on pause until 2003. At that time in Colombia it was very hard to complete my work because of the poor quality of machines and ink.

What year did you start tattooing? 2011. How did you get into tattooing? I realized my passion for art in my late teens and started drawing in my last few years at school, so it was a natural progression for me to want to get into this industry. I came straight out of school and found my apprenticeship.

What year did you start tattooing? 2006. How did you get into tattooing? I don't really remember how my fascination for tattoos started. Like many young people, I saw them in movies and on people I met as a kid, although, there were far less people with visible tattoos when I was a kid.

What year did you start tattooing? I was trying to get my art career off the ground, submitting samples and such to all the major companies. I got a corporate job to pay the bills, as usually happens, and I was offered a higher position in the company which meant more money, and more hours.

What year did you start tattooing? 2002. How did you get into tattooing? My friends forced me to buy my first pieces of tattoo equipment. I had no tattoos at this time and I was not a fan of tattooing, but my friends knew that I was very talented in drawing and they thought it was a good idea to make me a tattoo artist.

How did you get into tattooing? Believe it or not, my dad took me to a tattoo party in a garage when I was 14. That’s where I got my first tattoo, and a taste of a culture I had no idea existed. After getting my first tattoo, a friend offered me a machine for $20, which I took without thinking twice.

What year did you start tattooing? I started my apprenticeship in January of 2008, and luckily my mentor allowed me to do a tattoo every couple weeks or so on my buddies right from the start. I began tattooing full-time on April 20, 2009. Your work is very well rounded.

What year did you start tattooing? I started tattooing while I was in art school in Chicago in 1994. I never served an apprenticeship. When I was getting my second tattoo, by a friend of mine from art school, I got the idea that I should try tattooing.

Shop Artists: Stefano Alcantara (owner), Luis "El Nene" Tirado, Dirseu “Ed” Davila, Gian Villena, Tania Maia and Marco Morriberon (piercer) What sets Stefano’s Tattoo Studio apart from the average tattoo shop? Stefano Alcantara: I believe this studio is unique in South America because I am always trying to bring the best from what I was able to learn from my trips to the U.S. Since I opened in 1997, I approach tattooing as an art form, not as a business.
