Arlene Salinas was born and raised in Monrovia, CA and has been drawing and painting since early childhood. She’s been tattooing professionally since 2007. Arlene is a self-taught and formally trained artist/illustrator and tattooer. She uses contemporary and original ideas combined with strong traditional techniques.
“I enjoy tattooing everything but I like to focus on traditional inspired pieces and black and gray imagery. I take influences from all kinds of artists, tattooers, my peers, my Latino culture. I love what I do and I simply want to do good tattoos for as long as time allows it.”
Arlene is based in Los Angeles CA.
