Juan Canon

 

Greetings and Salutaions. I'm Juan. I've been making tattoos at West Side for the better half of my 12 years as a scab merchant. I enjoy long walks on the beach, hunting unicorns, and looking like chewbaccas illegitimate cousin.  I will tattoo almost anything you put in front of me if you'll let me be your huckleberry. I've learned how to walk and write twice, which was super fun. So come down to get some bold and colorful scabs. @obijuantattoos on the instagrams

Christian Puig

Hi I'm Christian Puig,

Hello! My name is Christian. I specialize in black and grey tattoos and love doing dot work, mandalas, floral, ornamental and illustrative. I've created art since I was a child which eventually led me to CU Boulder, where I graduated with an art degree and a minor in French. I have since worked for a local artist aiding in the creation of large-scale abstract paintings and other contemporary works.  I have also painted murals and have a love for photography. Although I work with several mediums, diving into the world of tattoos has been a game changer.

 

In my free time I enjoy hiking with my dog Onyx, climbing, boarding, and anything with adventure!

 

Check out my work!

🇧🇷 Vicky Ellis 🇺🇸

Hello, I'm Vicky. I was born in a tropical forest in Brazil, under a mango tree. Since I was a child my favorite thing was drawing on caves' walls  using acai ink hoping that some day in a distant future someone would find them and think it was made by ETs. In 2017 I began my professional career  and the rest is history. I specialize in fine line work, but I also do a lot of dot work, black work, and colors.

Armando Munoz
🇲🇽 Armandean 🇺🇸

Armando Munoz, known as Armandean, was born on October 7, 1986, in Mexico. Growing up in Cuautitlán Izcalli, Estado de Mexico, he developed a passion for drawing, often getting in trouble at school for sketching during classes. His inspiration came from his father, an artist who painted murals in their home. At 21, Armandean's journey into tattooing began when a friend asked him to fix a poorly done tattoo. Despite having no experience, he used his drawing skills to create his first tattoo, sparking his interest in the craft. He started working at Tianguis de Lagunilla and later joined prominent studios in Mexico City, including Gallonegro, Soulflower Custom Tattoo, and Tatudemia. In 2018, he founded his own studio, "Viernes 13 Tattoo Collective," bringing together some of Mexico's top tattoo artists. With over 10 years in the industry, Armandean has attended renowned conventions worldwide and worked as a guest artist in many countries. His unique style combines realism and contemporary art, characterized by dark and vibrant colors influenced by New York City. Currently, Armandean is a member of the pro team at World Famous Ink.
