(Papa G)
Artist Extraordinaire

Tattooing since 2001, G has worked in NY and CA studios before coming to Vanity Rites at it's inception in 2010.

G's classical training started at SVA (the  School of Visual Arts) and Art Students League both in NYC. There he focused on fine art and animation.

In this digital age, he believes tattooing to be one of the last forms of true art. He chose tattooing purely for the artistic freedom it provides. He also loves the collaboration with clients before each project. The love of creating images for his clients that they will love and be proud to wear for the rest of there lives is his reward.
