RICH MARTINEZ

Tattoo Artist


Born a Libra in 1976, has always set the tempo for my life. It’s given me a chance to be what I want to be, to do what I love to do, and help as many people as I can, along the way. I am blessed to be here today, tattooing family and friends, guiding and pushing myself as well as my peers, to be better than we were yesterday. Tattooing now for 13+ years I can say that I am still growing as an artist striving to be better, do better, and learn as much as I can before my days end. For many people this time is here, which gives me the opportunity to tattoo some of the most meaningful pieces, on very heartwarming people. I can say that this is what gets me through my daily grind, knowing that someone out there has lost a dear friend or family member, and needs a guy like me to help them get through it. Whether it be through a tattoo or as simple as lending an ear. I am here! Memorial tattoos fill my heart with joy, as well as sadness, to see a smile on a face that has been sad for some time now, is just simply amazing. The healing that a tattoo can achieve is worth more than the money that is already owed, to somebody or something, in our lives as humans, that we must find a bigger inspiration to produce tattoos of this caliber. Memorial tattoos come with weight too heavy to bear alone, with the help of faith and inner peace we can get through it together. Don’t get me wrong, life and love are just as strong in my days, I am grateful for so many things including my wife of 18 years, 6 kids, one grand baby, and the opportunity to teach and be taught. I have worked for many shops in my short time as an Artist, so I can say this, SKANVAS TATTOO is where I have learned the most about tattooing, life, business and true friendship. This place has been one of the best places I have ever worked in so far. For this, I am also grateful. Thank you for reading just a little into my life and what love is to me. I hope to see you soon, and hear about something or someone you love and or Cherish in your own life. If there is one quote I try to live by today, it is this one: “Be the lighthouse for those lost in the storm”. So if you have somehow stumbled upon me, or my path, it is not simply by chance… The rest is up to you…
