After obtaining his Professional Tattoo Certification in 2005 and gaining invaluable experience in well run shops in NJ, Carlos moved back to Houston with his wife, Angela and opened up Artcage Tattoo Studio in 2012 and has been refining his skills ever since.

Carlos loves the opportunity to create many styles of tattoos, and while he specializes in realistic images, Japanese designs and custom illustrations– he is not limited in creative collaborations with his clients. Carlos creates tattoos of all shapes and sizes- he has a devoted following of clients with full back pieces, and has taken on many tattoo cover up requests, turning older ink in to new amazing works of art.

In addition to creating incredible tattoo artwork, Carlos also does pencil work- creating unique prints, logos for different businesses and record album cover artwork. His other interests include collecting vinyl records and a love for classic cars and dogs.
