Chris Gonzalez is a Cuban-American born in 1979 in Miami, FL.
He was raised in Hialeah, Fl and loves his city which is why it wasn’t that hard to choose a location when it came time to opening a tattoo shop.
Chris loved art from an early age and always participated in school art contests and spent a lot of his free time drawing. He received his first tattoo at the age of 15 and fell in love with the art of tattooing ever since. Although he loved art and tattoos it wasn’t until 2001 that he decided to actually begin tattooing.
With the help and inspiration from family, friends and fellow tattoo artists he was able to grow and develop himself into an artist that specializes in many different styles. He mainly prefers doing black and grey or realistic tattoos but is not limited to that alone. A look at his portfolio will show color, cover-ups, lettering, traditional and much more.
Chris was also trained in body piercing and began piercing in 2013 at the request of his customers that loved their tattoos but also wanted piercings and didn’t know where to go for piercings.
After working on his own and at other shops Chris decided he would dedicate himself to tattooing full time and decided to open The Shop Tattoo Studio in 2015 located in Hialeah, FL a block away from where he grew up. He is grateful to be in the community he grew up in and the trust that his customers give him by letting him give them his art that will last forever.
Chris has many repeat customers and maintains his clientele by putting 100% effort into every tattoo he does. He loves taking on new projects and enjoys a challenge. He is interested in doing more large black and grey pieces but welcomes any style of tattoo.
