Rioger Martinez

Rioger Martinez


La Jolla

Meet Rioger! You can also call him by his nickname, Rio. He was born in the beautiful city of Santa Cruz, Cuba. As a child, he dreamed of becoming a painter, fueled by his love for colors and the desire to create captivating visuals. Throughout his life, he has had the opportunity to experience different cultures and reside in beautiful places. From the vibrant streets of Cuba to the artistic landscapes of Russia, he now calls the sunny city of San Diego home.

Rio's tattooing career began when he was just 19 years old. It felt like a natural progression due to his passion for painting and art. After finishing fine arts school, he realized that tattoos could provide a permanent and personal form of artistic expression. Over the years, he has honed his skills and developed a distinct style that merges intricate details and captivating compositions.

This unique style creates beautiful realistic tattoos and intriguing black cubism masterpieces. When he's not wielding a needle, you find him drawing or painting. Rio can also be found skateboarding or at the gym, pushing his limits!
