Featured Tattoo Artist: Rich Bustamante

From Hell Hounds Tattoo in Brooklyn, NY comes Rich Bustamante, the Joey Voodoo Featured Tattoo Artist. I recently caught up with Rich to chat about his work and the artists he admires.

Joey: Hey Rich! Thanks for hanging out. First off tell us how long you’ve been tattooing and how did you get your start?

Rich: Cool…lets see…I got started in North Jersey about 15yrs ago.

Joey: You’re a real humble guy about your work (it’s fantastic) and you have lots of passion for it and for your customers. What does tattooing mean to you?

Rich: To me tattooing is the purest form of art and expression.

Joey: Is there a certain style of tattoos that you really enjoy doing?

Rich: Whether its reproducing a photograph or an original design, I really enjoy doing tattoos that I haven’t seen before. Things that are memorable and unique.

Joey: What artists do you admire?

Rich: Artists I admire are: BUGS, Stefano Alcantara, Pepper, Rich Pineda, Liz Cook, Nikko Hurtado, Boris, Grime, Tin Tin, Bernie Luther, Filip Leu, too many to name.

Joey: When not tattooing what do you enjoy to do?

Rich: I try to draw and paint as much as possible.

Joey: Is there someone you would love to tattoo?

Rich: Someone I’d love to tattoo??…friends and family and other artists whose work I respect.
