What makes an individual stand out from the crowd is interpretative. One might say that this happens as a result of inborn unique talents. Another may argue that and claim the result to be an unconventional process. In both cases, neither of them is right or wrong because the whole thing is not concrete. For Andrew Arteaga, standing tall apart from the crowd took a long chunk of his life. He lost his childhood in a neighbourhood influenced by negative things. The lack of the right guidance, care and love made Andrew fall into negative things as well. Eventually, he even got arrested and got sentenced to two years of jail.
One might have already assumed the degree of perils Andrew had to face because of external factors. The passion within him for art started when he was in that hell kind of neighbourhood. Art and creativity were the sole means of escape for him back then. He also had a profound interest in music and that gradually inspired him to make physical art. At first, his family was very against the idea of taking up art as a career. But, slowly and steadily things changed, Andrew’s stepdad gifted him the first-ever tattoo kit. That humble gesture made Andrew even stronger and closer to the path of success. He determined to practice tattoos continuously for eight years. The fruits of his dedication and strong passion turned sweet when he got a big break.
Andrew used this opportunity to grow and network. Soon, he got to work with celebrity clients such as Trippie Red, Smoke Purp, Jake Paul, and members of the Hype House, just to name a few. Since then, he has worked with numerous athletes, artists, actors, and so on. Andrew Arteaga is a true inspiration for the young aspirants in the tattoo industry and others as well. He states, “I stand out because my drive is incomparable and my motivation has always been to the roof people love that and have to support that since day one.” He adds on to this by advising, “To all the youth that are tired of hearing ‘you can do anything you put your mind to’ it really is true, so don’t stop what you’re doing, take it to the top, take everything!!”
Andrew Arteaga is truly an inspirational person who has made the best of the situation and instead turned his failures into stepping stones to success.
