My name is Juan, Jagz for Instagram purposes.
I was born in Colombia in 1992 but I have been living in Barcelona for over 3 years now.
After finishing my studies in design, I began working as a designer in different companies. Although work always went fine, I felt like all I was doing was just fulfilling a script for life: study, get a job and whatever follows.
So, tired of working in non-sense stuff, I decided to travel to Barcelona and study more so I could get some other tools to do something different with my life.
It was while studying illustration that I became aware that tattooing was a big deal for me.
I´ve always loved tattoos and some friends had suggested several times that I should start tattooing some day because they liked my drawings.
Eventually one day the idea just popped, and I went for it. I did a weekend intensive course with a tattoo artist who taught me how to use the equipment, got my sanitary and hygienic certificate and sailed off.
I started tattooing myself and some friends first until I got enough practice to start feeling more confident and relaxed while tattooing. It has been a self-taught process combined with tips from YouTube, online courses, and experienced tattoo artists for over 2 years now.
The whole process has been an exploration on how to replicate on the skin what I can do on paper.
I only do blackwork because personally I do not like how colors age on the skin, but I do not think my designs fit in any special tattoo category. I like to work with my customers side by side, always trying to create a unique design that they can gladly wear for the rest of their lives.
