Journey of a Tattoo Artist

Laylana Vazquez, Staff

Eddie Vazquez is a tattoo artist working in Peoria, Arizona. He is also known as eddievtattoos. He has been a tattoo artist for 12 years and has always had a passion for drawing and tattooing. He was always worked for other people, but in 2017 he opened his own tattoo shop.

Before his shop, from 2017 he would work for other people but he didn’t really like it so much because he didn’t like how they would run things so that’s when he decided to open his shop “Prohibited Art”.

“I always had a passion for tattooing ever since I was younger I was always really into imagery and art and kind of what it was about I was just always interested in it, to be honest,” said Eddie Vasquez.

If he wasn’t tattooing I wonder if he would be anywhere else since he has always had a passion for art itself in general.

“Yeah before I tattooed I was a graph design artist so I did that for 4 or 5 years before I started tattooing so if I didn’t tattoo I would just stick to that career,” said Eddie Vazquez.

He has so many big things going on in life. He has to have many or at least one big life goal.

“Honestly my biggest life goal is to travel more open up a couple more tattoo shops and have a couple more tattoo artists working under me and I want to travel and tattoo at the same time, to be honest,” said Eddie Vazquez.
