I am Julio Ferrer, and I’ve been a professional tattoo artist for 5 years. I am originally from Guadalajara, Mexico and have been a resident of Sacramento for the last 7 years. Tattooing is something I’m very passionate about and I enjoy collaborating with my clients to bring their vision to life on their skin. I utilize my 7 years of experience in professional graphic design to create unique pieces of art.
Some of my favorite subject matters for tattoos and art are nature and human anatomy. I love drawing and tattooing animals of any kind, flowers, the female figure, etc. I find inspiration in mythology, art nouveau, literature, films, classic European art, Japanese culture and a wide range of musical genres. Anything with bright vibrant color is also something I enjoy.
I believe tattoos are the ultimate jewelry, they carry a lot of meaning for the wearer and its main purpose is to make you look good and feel better about your self image. I’m always looking for ways to improve my skills and knowledge to design something that is beautiful and appealing but also complements the body shapes in an efficient and ornamental manner.
I appreciate all the opportunities and challenges that tattooing has brought me, and I am grateful for the trust of my clients! You can find me at Dark Atelier Tattoo, located on 1115 Front Street in Old Sacramento, CA.
