My name is Joan (Alan) Ramirez, I was born in 1990 in Tunja Colombia. Every since I was a little kid I have always appreciated and enjoyed creating art. After high school I went to college for engineering. After a few years of studying engineering I quit so I could pursue my career in tattooing. In 2013 I moved to Bogota and started tattooing professionally with a well known artist Carlox Angarita. During that time, I started gaining exposure in the tattoo industry.  I started traveling around South America and the United States. Eventually I moved to the United States and I’m currently based in Atlanta Georgia.
