ABOUT DAVE GARCIA
After earning my Associates Degree, I joined the U.S Marines Corps where I served honorably for almost eight years as an Illustrator in a Combat Camera Unit. This was mostly a Graphic Design position, yet I also did quite a bit of work as a Photographer and as a Videographer.
In 2007, I took a position as a Graphic Designer for the U.S. Bureau of Land Management where I did print media graphics and illustration.
In 2013, I decided to do something different in terms of artistic expression and went to school to become a Licensed Tattoo Artist in the State of Oregon, and finished my Bachelors Degree in Art Practices at Portland State University in 2016.
For me, one of the most exciting parts about becoming a Tattoo Artist is the freedom of expression and creativity it allows. I am excited to create custom, expressive, meaningful images that give a visual testimony to my clients’ lives and personalities.
After all, those designs will be on them the rest of their lives!
In addition to tattoo work, I am also available on a commission basis as a Fine Artist, and Freelance Graphic Designer. I have worked in most media (pencil, oil, acrylic, pastels, charcoal, watercolor, digital imaging software, 3-D animation and modeling, video editing, woodworking (guitar building) and sound design)
