When did you start your career as a tattoo artist?  
Ten years ago I got my very first tattoo and since then I was hooked.  I thought tattoo life was the coolest world ever.  After my tattoo I started to research, learn and then I made tattooing my career.

What do you enjoy doing when you’re not tattooing people? 
Basically I work everyday. When I’m not doing what I love (tattooing) you can find me taking care of my farm, going to the gym or just having fun.  My store is open everyday except Monday and we open at 12 noon until 8 PM.

What’s the best advice you would give about tattooing?
Choose a tattoo artist who have steady hands, someone who have a creative eye for art and research the tattoo artist and the tattoo you want in advance.  Not every tattoo artist is capable of taking your idea and turning it into a reality.

Tell us about a typical day in the life with Peco?
I don’t do it often but I enjoy traveling around the world.  In the past I use to work as a guest tattoo artist during my travels.  Today I have my shop and as I get more tattoo artist I would definitely like to travel again.
