Alf knew early on that his attention was pulled on by drawing, as every teacher would harshly remind him of as he endlessly doodled in his notebook during class. A product of the 80’s, he found himself sketching pop icons like Bart Simpson, Super Mario & the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. As a lover of skateboarding & BMX culture, he would ride with friends while listening to Guns N’ Roses in his walkman. By 17 years old, he followed in the footsteps of some friends & got his first tattoo, a small gecko. He became a regular tattoo client of Gerard Kuninski(Austria). He decided to leave it all to pursue tattooing. Learning in real life, through constant seminars & while going to tattoo expos throughout the U.S., Canada & Mexico. He was traveling when he met his future wife in Los Angeles in 2016. He quickly moved to the U.S., living in Glendale, California before settling in Orange County after the birth of his son in 2018. He’s so proud to debut Alf’s Body Art Studio in Belmont Shore Long Beach,CA where he hopes to set roots down for many years to come!
