SPECIALTY - BLACK & GREY REALISM
Meet the owner of Seven Tattoo Studio, Daniel Rocha! Known around the globe for his Black and Grey realism portraits and statue tattoos. Whether you known him for years, (as he is a Las Vegas native) or just now stumbling across his work for the first time, you quickly can see his art speaks for itself. However, that's where we come into tell you how Daniel's art got to where it is at! Before getting into the tattoo industry, Daniel was a plumber in town for 7 years. Buying a tattoo kit online, he quickly started working on his friends and neighbors. Starting from a non-traditional apprenticeship is never easy, but with enough determination and needing to provide for his family, he made it work.
Daniel started to refine his skills enough to start working in a local tattoo shop. This being his first experience tattooing around other tattoo artists will always be a memory he won't forget. Like anything, it got better and fast! After working at a few local shops and learning new techniques to help with his application. Soon Daniel had his eye on traveling and attending tattoo conventions. Noticing all the tattooers he followed would be at the shows, he would go to conventions to watch them work and ask as many questions as possible. At this point Daniel was proficient with color but surprisingly didn't have too many black and grey pieces under his belt. That Soon changed, as Steve Soto brought him over for a guest spot at his studio. This shop was renowned for black and grey so everyone started booking with Daniel under the presumption that he specialized in B&G. Attending International shows starting with Puerto Rico, then Amsterdam, Germany, and so on. Networking happened without even realizing it, all the friends he met along the way had the same drive, and were pushing the limits of what was capable in the tattooing community. Now years after opening his second shop, you still will find him hard at work finding new innovative ways to push every limits of his life to new levels, all while bringing his family and friends along for the ride!
