ARACELY LEYVA CRUZ
TO MAKE LIVING ITSELF AN ART, THAT IS THE GOAL.
I was born in a small town in Sonora, Mexico and moved to Arizona at the age of 13, I always been passionate about Art ever since I was a little girl but it never crossed my mind that one day I'd be making a living out of tattooing, my tattoo journey began on March 2015 when I started my first apprenticeship.
before tattooing I was in a very dark place with no future and ambition, struggling to find a steady job that would allow me to provide for my family. being a single mom was the most challenging part but also my motivation, I was working two jobs looking for a 3rd job when I met the person who soon became my best friend, he had just started working at a newly opened local tattoo shop, He mentioned me the shop was looking to hired someone who can help with the front desk. without a doubt I went and got hired, little did I know it was just the begging of this beautiful journey.
Tattooing is my everything, it rescued me and gave me the opportunity to create a new and better life, but it wasn't luck either, its all been hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, LOVE OF WHAT YOU ARE DOING.
