Chris Nuñez (born in 1972, is of Cuban descent and grew up in Miami, USA)
He entered into the realm of tattooing after beginning his career as a graffiti artist. When he was 21 years old, Chris packed his bags for a short trip to Brazil and ended up staying for five years. He then traveled throughout Europe for three years, which allowed him to work with all of his favorite tattoo artists. The experience expanded both his artistic sense and his knowledge of tattooing. Chris’ father died when he was young, so he got his first artwork, a hand-poked tattoo of a cross, when he was 16 years old. His favorite tattoo is the one his mom did.
