Bold, striking, captivating are just a few words that come to mind when describing the tattoo work of Ernesto Nave. For being a tattooer for only three years, Ernesto’s work will leave you speechless.
Joey: How did you get into tattooing and who gave you your first shot?
Ernesto: I was coming in to the Beauty Mark to get a tattoo, and at the time i was teaching figure drawing at the Cheshire ArtsPlace. Pete, the owner, after learning i gave art instruction asked to barter tattoos for drawing lessons that i would give his apprentices. I started hanging out, and gave it a whirl and had became hooked. I have been working there since.
Joey: You work is fantastic. I really enjoy how bold and striking your colors are. Who or what have influenced your art?
Ernesto: Dan Dos Santos, Frank Frazetta, Iain Mccaig, the guys from Hope Gallery, Mark Ryden, the Illustration Masters Class (IMC).
