Carlos Velasquez, better known as Velco, is a tattoo artist that does really intriguing, one-of-a-kind textured tattoos. Although he only began tattooing professionally in 2019, he has now perfected the skill of creating gritty tattoos.

His hybrid creative studio is focused on streetwear, music, design, and tattoos. He admitted in an interview with Demilked that he only did fine line work when he first started tattooing because he wanted to become used to the skin, needle, and ink before experimenting with different techniques. After a year of practice, I began experimenting with different methods and, in response to a client’s request to add shade to one of my drawings, I discovered the network effect that I now use. I was pleasantly pleased by how much I liked the obtained grainy texture, and it changed the direction of my future tattooing,”

Velco added, “Since then, I’ve been working on ideas where I can combine this effect. The result gave me the sensation of the lovely vintage, grainy texture in photographs recorded with a film camera.” Check out the pictures below to see some of his amazing tattoos.
