Alejandro’s current focus at Dzul Ink Lounge is on tattooing. He was introduced to art at an early age growing up in Los Angeles. He remembers watching his self-taught mother sketch original designs for clothing and feeling inspired to put his own ideas onto paper. His talent was apparent from the beginning as his early sketches began earning Alejandro commissions from neighborhood families.
As a teenager, he moved to Seattle and learned the art of airbrushing. He began creating custom airbrush designs at local fairs and festivals, where he was recognized for his natural artistic talent. He began his career as a tattoo artist when customers began to request custom tattoo designs from him.
Alejandro finds that the most rewarding aspect of the tattoo process is utilizing his skills to develop a design that realizes his client’s vision and desires. He enjoys creating something that symbolizes one’s life experiences and dreams. Alejandro is especially honored to work on milestone or memorial tattoos that act as a remembrance of someone or something important. He is adept at helping clients choose an existing image to get tattooed.
Alejandro studied graphic design and photography. His photographs can be viewed at the studio. He also acts as the Director of Business and Marketing at Dzul Ink Lounge. His personal goals include publishing a book of his photography and tattoo designs, and to showcase his artworks at professional galleries. After a small reprieve to focus on spear heading the business’ growth, Alejandro has gotten to throw himself back into his first passion of tattooing and urges you to keep a look out in the near future for more new work.
