Featured Artist of the Week: Rick

Wednesday December 04, 2013

Rick has pursued artistic endeavors for as long as he can remember. Fostering a love for drawing he started doodling on flesh canvas at 16.  Always practicing on friends who offered themselves to help his learning, Rick quickly discovered how much he liked tattooing. His first apprenticeship was with Chuy at Aztec Art, then at the House of Talent in Oak Cliff, where Rick met Boog, who took the aspiring artist underneath his wing for his formal training. There he picked up script work, and has continued to developed his skills in Photo Realism, but likes to remain as flexible as possible, readily applying himself to be well versed in color and black and gray. Rick's artistic and tattoo influences include Rember and Frank Sanchez, Victor Portugal, Boog and Mr. Cartoon. Rick is currently at Cat Tattoo in Addison, TX.
