Check Out Stiven Hernández’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Stiven Hernández. 

Hi Stiven, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
My love for art started when I was 8 years and through the years I loved to paint on different types of surfaces. By the age of 14, I started painting with an airbrush and worked in several jobs in Colombia. At the age of 26, I came to the United States and started working at the Marina painting boats for a few years. I have always had friends in the art industry – painters, and tattooists amongst others. 

About 4 years ago, I began my interest in being a tattoo artist. A friend supported me and taught me his techniques. Through discipline and along with the support and collaboration of other friends in the industry – have contributed to my growth. I feel that when I tattoo, I can see many personalities. I have truly enjoyed capturing the stories of my clients on their skin. 

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
I think the most difficult thing for me and I think for other Latin American artists is being able to communicate well with clients. being able to speak English fluently is something I’m improving day by day 

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
Many of my friends know me for being dedicated and disciplined with my projects. I feel that despite having little time in this country I have managed to open doors in my artistic environment 

Are there any apps, books, podcasts, blogs, or other resources you think our readers should check out?
