Brando fell in love with art through graffiti. He started doing graffiti in 2006. By 2009 he was doing commission work for his paintings. In winter of 2014 he followed his uncle’s footsteps to became a tattoo artist. Brando started his apprenticeship at Freedom tattoo in Rapid City, SD. He was there for roughly two years and then got offered a spot with Bad Cat Tattoo Studio, which is where he is currently. Brando enjoys doing ornamental, neo-traditional, black and grey realism, and geometric designs. What pushes him is seeing other artists work. Some future plans for Brando is going to more conventions, become a sponsored artist, push his art skills to the max, own a tattoo shop, and become a famous artist like Paul Akers or Jime Litwalk.
