Carlos has been tattooing for about 15 years. I remember the day he brought home his first machine and how excited he was. Mostly self taught, he worked at a couple of tattoo shops before he got his big break at So. Cal Tattoo in San Pedro CA. It was there he learned the most and started to perfect his tattoo portfolio. Specializing in Black & Gray realism, he loves doing all tattoos, color, portraits, etc.
He began painting about 7 years ago and has a deep passion for it, sometimes he doesn’t even want to hang out cause he wants to go home and paint. He has painted the poster/banner for the Ink-n-Iron Tattoo Festival in Long Beach CA for the past 4 years, and just painted the poster for the Denmark, Copenhagen Tattoo Convention.
Carlos works and owns Timeline Gallery in San Pedro CA. It is there where he is afforded the time to travel and do conventions worldwide. Carlos is a worldwide multi-award winner ranging from small black & gray to large black & gray to best backpiece etc,. He has been in numerous publications worldwide and is a really funny guy when you get to know him. He loves his family and we are VERY proud of his accomplishments.(Text Ref: carlostorresart.com)
