Tattoo Artists You Really Should Get To Know: Andrés Acosta

You've seen Andrés Acosta's works here, but there's more to the man behind the morphed roses.
Andrés Acosta currently works at Shaman Modifications Body Piercing Studio in Austin, Texas.
He started tattooing in 2009, back in Venezuela. It was at Industry, a tattoo shop in his hometown of Barquisimeto, where it all began. He used to hang out there and take cues from his mates and eventually learning the art itself.

With his wife
It's when he met his wife Alex that got him where he is now. Sold all his things to move to the US and settle down. That may be one of the best decisions he made since upon moving, he landed a spot in a local tattoo shop where he continued his beginnings.

He describes his dream client as someone with at theme and idea looking to get a tattoo in his style; someone with the idea but will give him enough freedom to work his magic.
This is love.

He's not one to say no to some very odd requests either. Take this tattoo of a unicorn foetus inside a Jell-O, with a rainbow around it.
