Mateo Robles has been an artist “pretty much since I could hold a pencil” he says. Growing up in Southern California, it was only natural to be drawn to its special lifestyle and culture. Art, Skateboarding , Surfing, and Kustom Kulture quickly became part of his life as well as a major influence in his art. Mateo explains “It was a natural progression to be a part of all that, and eventually become a tattoo artist.”

He enjoys all styles and aspects of tattooing but would like to focus on a mixture of black and grey photo realism and illustrative design. “I always look forward to taking someones idea for a tattoo, and turning it into reality. That’s my favorite part of the process… to connect with my clients, to see, draw and design what they are thinking. Giving them the best tattoo I can.”
