Custom Tattoo Design by Hector Guma

Custom Tattoo Design by Hector Guma Jr.

This week our spotlight is on one of our many talented artists, Hector Guma Jr.

Hector is a professional artist who was born and raised in New York city. According to Hector, he fell in love with drawing when he was only 6 years old. His grandfather was a well known painter from Puerto Rico and a left-hand artist just like Hector. As a teenager, Hector  attended an art school for gifted teenagers called Art and design H.S in New York and continued his passion in art in many mediums from acrylic oil to water colors. Hector’s favorite style that he enjoys doing the most is photo realism and fantasy art. Hector loves challenges!

As a young adult, he attended the art college called F.I.T(Fashion Institute of Technology) from where he received a degree in illustration. At the age of 24, he met a local tattooist from Brooklyn New York by the name of Larry Rotundo who was a tattoo veteran with almost 30 years of experience. Hector trained under him for about two years in tattooing and after his apprenticeship, Larry told Hector that he was a gifted artist and had a natural flair for tattooing.

Inspired, Hector moved on in his tattooing career and created his own collection of flash designs and more. He now has 17 years of tattooing experience and his work was featured in Urban Ink magazine’s tattoo revue, skin art, envy, and more. He insists that his true passion is art and making his clients happy with every unique drawing he creates for them.

Hector currently owns a reputable tattoo shop in Cartersville, Georgia for 12 years now and is still going strong due to the support of his loyal clients and friends.

Tattoo Pride for Tattoo Artistry

November 15th, 2009

Singapore Tattoo Show Tat2 2010

Tattoo Lovers will descend upon Singapore in 2010 … seeking creativity,  education in responsible tattooing, observe fusion of east and west Tattoo Artistry … and 3 days of massive entertainment.


With the intention of not only providing a show for tattoo lovers, both in Singapore and Asia, but also wanting to ensure sufficient education in responsible tattooing amongst teenagers and young adults; the Singapore tattoo show is coming back for the 2nd time, bringing more entertainment and exposure to people through this unique form of art. Organized by Debra Tan and Kirby Lian from Utopia Studios, the show is to be held at the Singapore Expo, Hall 6B from 8 to 10 January 2010, starting from 12pm to 10pm on the 8th and 9th, and 12pm to 8pm on the 10th.


Tat2 2010 Event Invitation: Mingle with over 10,300 Tattoo Fans & Artists


With guest appearance by Kim Saigh (LA ink), Tim Hendricks (Gold Rush tattoo), Michelle Myles (Daredevil tattoo and winner of TLC’s Tattoo War Competition at the 6th Annual Boston Tattoo Convention), Shige (Yellow Blaze Tattoo, Japan) and returning to this show again will be Chris Garver (Miami ink) and Bob Tyrell (Night Gallery). Also attending the show will be VIP guest, Matt Booth, celebrity jewellery designer and owner of Room101 who is also the guest judge for this upcoming year’s tattoo show with Room101 being the major sponsor for this event.


People attending Tat2 2010 can be prepared for a wide variety of visual feasts with a line up that includes Rubberboy’s performance, Best male and female tattoo competition, and the first of its kind in Asia – Miss Tattoo Asia, alongside with over 300 internationally regarded artists coming together to showcase their talent in full view of audiences who are fans or just mere curious. This is the place to be if you are an avid tattoo collector or  people who are interested to see what Tattoo today is all about, a culture that used to be taboo but is so widely welcomed in recent times. 


The newest addition to this coming year’s show is the Miss Tattoo Asia segment. Probably the first of its kind, it attempts to open the minds of the general public that beauty comes in all forms, especially in recent times where people are exposed to so many different things and the form of beauty is somewhat subjective. Trying to break away from the stereotypical female beauty, it aims to address a form of liberalism and modernist way of perceiving beauty.


Apart from this unique beauty contest, there is also the best male and female tattoo competition where proud owners of beautiful masterpieces on their bodies get to flaunt and compete to stand a chance to win the top prize. You’d be surprised to see how realistic and beautiful a tattoo can get, as the standard and works of tattoo artists are getting better and better, especially with quite a handful of artists who already have a history of doing fine arts before they ventured into tattooing.
