Vinny Valdez is a tattoo artist with an eclectic style and edge that speaks louder than words. Originally from Chicago, Valdez took a lot of his inspiration from the nature and wilderness around him. He grew up on a forest preservation and found beauty in the times he spent wading through ponds, creeks, and lakes catching turtles and frogs. Valdez, being a deaf artist, developed his vision and ideas through visual cues that most hearing people would miss. Tattooing is his medium to showcase his passion and love for art. Vinny completed his Bachelors in Fine Arts at Illinois in 2007 and has been a tattoo artist since 2010. Since the first time he picked up a tattoo machine he bleeds black and grey. Vinny is located in San Francisco, California.
