Please introduce yourself.
Joey Ortega, age 29 from Austin, Texas. My profession, more or less my life, is tattooing. I’ve been tattooing for just a little over 10 years now and don’t plan on stopping any time soon. Aside from tattooing I work on all kinds of other projects as well, painting, drawing, building vintage cars, jewelry design and fabrication. Too many things to name honestly, I’ve got a lot of irons in the fire. Presently I started a personal sketchbook, something where I can work on developing my own ideas and concepts, as well as work on things I would like to improve on. This started as a desire to draw for fun again with out any client direction. I find myself submerged in doing nearly all of my drawings for someone other than myself lately, so I decided I needed to do so again. People has been asking me for years if I would sell my sketch books, so when I feel I have the amount of content that I feel is enough, I’m planning to make a printed book of my sketches, notes and in the back portion of the book there will be a few pages that show my process from sketch to final tattoo.
