Adrián Rodríguez
Realistic tattoo artist, expert in animal pieces.

Since we are going to be together for a while, I want you to get to know me a little.

I am Adrián Rodríguez (but you can call me Adrián Rod) and I have been dedicated to the professional tattoo world for more than 10 years.

I have to confess that I was always a restless child, fascinated by art.

As I grew up I began to express myself through graffiti and digital design. And from there I jumped to the tattoo…

And yes, even though it was love at first sight for ink, I had no idea where to start.

So I started learning on my own, with friends, using what I had on hand at the time (maybe the same as you are now, right?).

But seeing how little by little the work began to pay off, I said to myself:

Come on Adrián, no pain no gain! 

So I decided to open my own studio, in San Antonio de Los Altos, Venezuela called: Altos Tattoo Studio.

My unstoppable desire to grow led me to be able to tattoo in dozens of cities: New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Mexico City, Guadalajara, Madrid, Barcelona, ​​Valencia...

Having the opportunity to collaborate with several artists and absorb knowledge from lots of tattoo cultures.

My training has been a constant learning process in which I still am (and I hope to always be).

I am grateful for the opportunity to share my art with the world and to leave a lasting imprint on people's skin.

I believe that tattooing is more than just a piece of art on the skin, it is a personal and meaningful experience for each individual.

Let me be part of your story!

See you inside.

Este chico es genial.

Maria del Mar SALMERÓN Jiménez (Hellín, ES)
Lo recomiendo 100%

Llevo muchos años tatuando realismo con diluidos de negro y nunca me había atrevido a dar el salto a los grises. Este curso me ha enseñado muy bien la metodología paso a paso. Desde hacer la composición teniendo en cuenta los contrastes y la armonía de la iluminación de la figura sobre el fondo. Adrián Rodríguez me parece una persona muy perfeccionista, meticulosa e higiénica, a la par que, un gran artista con una gran formación detrás. Gracias!!
