Carlos Rojas used to draw a lot as a kid and really got into it in high school, taking basic drawing classes. He used to draw and recreate the stuff that was in the low rider art magazines.
Carlos is no doubt very skilled in both b&g and color realistic tattooing. The way he explains it is simply that it all depends on the piece. Some things just looks better in color, and others in black and grey.
He personally says he is more comfortable with black and grey, just because when he learned how to tattoo that was primarily the type of artist he wanted to become. But then again, if he feel he can pull it off in color, he’ll shoot for that because he like a challenge.
