Sugar skulls, creepy creatures and pop culture cuties of all kinds, the work of Roberto Euán seamlessly blends salty and sweet. His tattoos are the embodiment of eye candy, and will give you the sugar high giggles of glee that you've been looking for. But don't let all the glitter and glitz fool you, Roberto has the depth, devotion, and incredible strength of character that gives his work an absolutely inspiring aspect that is impossible to ignore. Infusing many of his pieces with his culture, influences, and deepest passions, Roberto was kind enough to give us some of his time to expound on the importance of heroes and heritage.
