About Rafael Marte
One of my goals has always been to make art my career. Tattooing has given me that opportunity since 2004. I have spent the last 6 years at Studio 28 in Manhattan NYC. My style would be considered Illustrative tattoos. I like tattooing images that have a sense of realism but I also use graphic elements like bold lines, stippling, and bold coloring and shading when the piece calls for it. I also really enjoy to replicate artwork on skin . It’s a fun challenge to keep the details as close to the original while still making it work as a tattoo that will hold up over time.
Custom work takes time to prepare so contact me as soon as possible with your ideas to get a unique and well planed out tattoo. You can reach me via e-mail at Studio28Rafael@gmail.com
