    David studied fine arts in the Academy of Art San Alejandro, the oldest and most prestigious fine arts school in his natal Havana, Cuba. Later, he continued at the University of Arts of Cuba. After graduating he became interested in tattooing. He spends most of his time drawing, tattooing custom art work and oil painting. As a tattoo artist, he is always eager to learn more, and after almost five years tattooing he prefers to do black and gray pieces in traditional and tribal styles. David really loves drawing, so he feels happy designing a custom tattoo for each individual client. If you give him a basic idea of what you are looking for and a little artistic freedom, there is no doubt that he will be able to come up with something unique and one of a kind just for you.
