Born in Gran Canaria, Jota moved to Madrid to study art and classic painting at the age of 18.
During his student years, he started an apprenticeship in a local tattoo parlor, where a few years later, he began as a full-time tattooist.
His motivation was fueled by the process of manifesting art and conveying feelings on the skin. He started reading tattoo magazines as a teenager, and that was the first reference he had. Following the work of big-name artists at that time, like Robert Hernandez, Paul Booth, Joshua Carlton, and many more.
During his career, he has done many different tattoo styles but ended up selecting black and grey realism as his favourite, although he is still open to working with colours at the client’s request. He is passionate about dark style, warriors and Japanese. The portraits of film characters are among the projects he is aiming to work within the soon future.
Besides tattooing, he likes and enjoys painting, primary oil on canvas. Also, he is a fan of an active lifestyle and loves training, running or going to the gym.
