TW: Can you describe yourself in 3 words?
– Absolutely lazy workaholic.  

TW: What career did you quit in your past to become a tattoo artist?
– Graphic designer (and I regret it so much (NO)). 

TW: What was your dream job when you were a child?
– You’d be surprised, but it was a tattoo artist. When I was 9-10 years old I did “tattoos” with a marker on my friends’ bodies and they gave me soda and chips for that. 

TW: Let’s talk about the movie “Shining” with Jack Nicholson. How many “Jack Nicholsons” would you give on a scale from 1 to 10 to this movie?
– 10 “Jack Nicholsons” and 1 “The Overlook” Hotel, lol.  

TW: Which tattoo would you do for the main character?
– Recursive. It would be a Jack Nicholson’s head coming from the hole in the door with a tattoo of a Jack Nicholson’s head coming from the hole in the door.  

TW: What’s your favorite movie? Did you draw something inspired by this movie?
– I don’t think I can name one movie, I have a few. Let’s say it’s “El laberinto del fauno”. Unfortunately, I don’t have drawings like that, but I did tattoos inspired by “Big Lebowski”, “Snach” and “Pulp Fiction”.  

TW: If you find yourself in some crazy circus show (and you definitely will soon), what kind of character would you be?
– I would be the guy who can make time go slower (so I’d have enough time for everything!)
