If you are a tattoo lover, you will certainly be interested in the creative path of tattoo artists and what motivated them to choose this profession. Any fan of flower tattoos, we believe, will be familiar with rose tattoos of Phil Garcia, which are mostly depicted in a realistic style.
And do you know what else Phil does besides being a tattoo artist? He was born in Sandiego, in a military family. Since childhood, he had a special love for art and painting, and also mastered English and Spanish. He also took up surfing.
After graduation, he served in the US Navy for over eight years. Despite the fact that his work has nothing to do with painting, he never forgot his love for art.
While still in school, he was engaged in painting in his free time and thus avoided boredom. And the military career, according to the artist, instilled in him discipline, motivation and confidence. These are qualities that a person needs in life and which help in various situations.
Having learned important tips for life from his military career, he is now engaged in painting tattoos. The vast majority of his designs are rose tattoos.
Phil Garcia Chooses Tattooing as a Profession
The meeting with Luis Ruiz was extremely important for Phil Garcia. Very impressed with the tattoos drawn by young Luis Ruiz, he decided to start creating tattoo designs. He first worked as a tattoo artist at The Ink House.
It is interesting that it was thanks to this profession that Phil met the greatest love of his life. Angela visited him to get a tattoo, and when she wanted to pay, Phil offered to agree to go to a cafe with her instead of paying. Now they have three children. Since 2009, Phil has opened Inkphiller Studio and is still doing tattoos. He has won a number of awards in this field.
