Damien Ramirez is a NYC native artist who began tattooing in NYC in 1997. Having no means for a formal apprenticeship, he set out to teach himself the medium by studying great tattoo artists at conventions and whatever help artists from recognized shops would offer.
Part surgical, part creative and all enduring, make tattooing a challenging and sensational task to perform.
The 20 odd years Damien has been tattooing have fostered an artist that can successfully achieve desirable results time and time again- this mind you, in just about every tattoo style imaginable.
