My name is Vincent “VINNIE” Rodriguez. I was born in 1981. I’m from Bloomington, California. I’ve lived in Arizona since 1995. And still haven’t got used to the heat. I have been into art since I was a kid. I loved every aspect of it.
I’ve always wanted my career to have something to do with art. It just never worked out until I found tattooing. I was formally apprenticed by Domenic Viviano in 2009. The style of tattooing I prefer to do would be Traditional. To me it’s the essence of tattooing. I love its simplicity and boldness. It makes for a good strong tattoo.
I try to be as versatile as I can in style. But Traditional is what I enjoy and have fun with the most. I have a completely open mind in learning anything new about tattooing. I continually try to better myself and my skills. Some of my major influences and inspirations in tattooing would be Domenic Viviano, Myke Chambers, Bert Krak, Frank “Capone” Felix, Aaron Coleman, Destroy Troy, and Tim Hendricks. I love what I do and I’m honored to be part of the Club Tattoo crew.
