At the Seventh Day Studio in Auckland, New Zealand, you can find one of the most innovative tattoo artists the world has to offer. This artist has the ability to fuse together two styles that couldn't be further apart on the spectrum. Nature and geometry don't seem like they would complement each other well, but Jasper Andres appears to have found a way to make it work.
Jasper originally moved to New Zealand from the Philippines in 2008, and his artistic and mathematical talents led him to architecture. Unfortunately, even though he was accepted into Victoria University, his family couldn't afford the tuition.
With his dream of being an architect dashed, Andres began fiddling around with tattooing his friends. He got himself a kit and began browsing online how to make it work. By practicing on his friends, he found a new love in tattoos.
Through this newfound love of body art, Andres began an apprenticeship at Monique's Euro Tattoo Shop. He studied there for a year before the shop closed down. After the closure, Andres carried out on his own, tattooing his way across the world.
He worked as a private entity until he saw an ad about Tritoan Ly creating a new studio and needing artists. He applied and has been working at the Seventh Day Studio ever since.
