I, Marco Antonio Olmos also known as Monkey which is a nickname that was given to me by my parents, because as a kid I would get into trouble and climb trees to keep my parents from whipping my behind. (laughs about it).

I was born and raised in Southern California and grew up in the South Bay area. Since I was a kid I've always loved art and as I hit my teen yearsI found my way into tattooing after I bought my first tattoo magazine which I still have til this day. 

After a few years of mistakes and learning, in 2001 I was blessed to step foot into my first tattoo studio. Since then, it's been a great journey learning different styles and techniques from such great tattooers which I still learn from everyday. One of the best things I am also blessed with is meeting good people which keeps me focused, humble, and positive.
