My name is Isaac Aguila and I have been a tattoo artist for the past ten years of my life. Prior to that I worked random jobs but never felt that zing of happiness in my working life until I was given an opportunity to draw and express. I’ve always been interested in art. I’ve studied the works of Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Giorgione, and Botticelli. I feel I am mostly drawn to early Renaissance painting and sculptures. I have been lucky in my travels and have come across pieces from the father of baroque painting, Caravaggio. I listen to classical music while I paint and draw in my art room. I guess I’m a classic art nerd.
I got lucky in my early life and met my wife in high school. We have been married for almost ten years but together for 15 and within this time we added our two daughters, Angelina and Lilith. Fun fact for those fact seekers the name Lilith is actually the name of Adams first wife before Eve. Don’t believe me? Look it up.
When I’m not tattooing I’m either fishing, lobstering or hanging with my family. I enjoy hanging down at the surf and watching the crabs and shells burrow into the sand. I draw on my free time and paint whenever I can get the chance.
My wife and I are big movie people say any quote and I guarantee one of us will get it. I spend a lot of time helping my wife with the kids because my wife is actually going to nursing school. Pretty proud of her for that one.
I grew up in San Diego but with being able to work conventions I’ve been able to travel across the world to places such as Amsterdam, France, and Italy. Art encompasses every little thing I do down to the crafts my daughter glues onto the back of my hands sometimes.
I enjoy doing tattoos and creating something that wasn’t there before. When a client comes to me and brings something totally new to the table I get to read and research what it is and in the process of designing the piece I get to learn something new which is what life is all about. I look forward to working with you and creating an everlasting tattoo that will make both of us happy. Myself for being able to provide you with a piece of me and you with being able to get something meaningful to yourself.
I’ll leave you off with a quote that I have up in my home:
“Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don’t wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it’s at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored. ”
