Born and raised in the City of Smiles, Bacolod City Philippines, John has always been surrounded with art. He loves to be challenged with his creativity and skills, whether it be digital drawing or sculpting. In 2014, he pursued Fine Arts in La Consolacion College Bacolod. Being fascinated by art, he started doing henna tattoos during festivals, and eventually gathered an interest in doing tattoos professionally. He is always eager to learn every form of art but especially in tattoos. Now, he is currently trying to make his way up to make a name in the tattoo scene here in Montreal and someday, in Canada.
