David Mendieta

I’m originally from the northwest suburbs of Chicago. I’ve been creating art ever since I can remember. I still recall the moment when I became an artist, I think it was around when I was 5 or 6 years old. I would watch my father draw and thought it was the coolest thing. I would ask him to draw things for me because I enjoyed watching him create something from scratch. Then one day he asked me to try and draw, and started replicate things I liked, so my sketch books were filled with Lowrider cars and Pokémon. Since that moment I’ve been drawing all throughout my life. I find inspiration in old vintage history books, Japanese woodblock prints, animals, insects and nature. Tattooing is my passion and have been tattooing professionally since 2015. I’m attracted to weird, colorful, abstract, and bold imagery.

When I’m not tattooing and making art, I enjoy hanging out with my wife, eating, staying active, and spending as much time outdoors as possible.
