I was born in Caracas, Venezuela and raised in South Florida. But, my home is Atlanta. I've spent the past decade tattooing here and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. My tattoo career spans 18 awesome years. I have a deep love and respect this art form and hope to continue until I'm old and grey. 

As a tattooer, I express myself by changing things up and staying on my toes. My focus is large scale pieces.  I work in both color and black and grey and I tattoo in a variety of styles. My favorites being, surrealism, realism, geometric, and psychedelic. 

People seek tattoos for a variety of reasons. Maybe it's to celebrate growth, to make a change, to remember, to let go, or just to have something that brings them a smile and makes them feel good. Whatever the reason, I like to use my artwork to help people express themselves.

Having a career in art gives me the freedom to explore and enjoy a variety of areas in life. As such, I have a wide range of interests. I'm intrigued by science and medicine, l'll build lego sets or make furniture, listen to everything from metal to jam bands, and read sci-fi to history. Having diverse interests, I'm open to the diversity of others. Whether we like the same things or not, all are welcome.

 

When I'm not at work, I'm most likely to be found at home. My time is spent with my incredible wife and our gang of goofy rescues, including two cats and three dogs.

Caleb was born Florida, but recently moved from Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, where he served honorably in the United States Marine Corps. In order to pursue a career in tattooing, he started his search for talented and professional artists to learn from and enthusiastically began honing his skills.

 

Caleb has always been interested in art. He started painting and drawing with graphite, and colored pencils, from an early age. Caleb really fell in love with the art form, when he went to Japan and saw the traditional Japanese tattoo culture. He loved the art so much, while living in Japan he decided his first tattoo would be a full back piece performed by a traditional Japanese master.  From that day on Caleb was determined to pursue a career in tattooing.

 

Caleb loves tattooing all manners of creatures, geometric designs, lettering, and weapons of all kinds. He conducts himself as a professional in every aspect including punctuality, communication and preparation for his designs. In his free time Caleb enjoys shooting, working out, and playing guitar.
