Christian O’Reilly was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. In his younger years, you would catch him drawing characters of athletes from the local TV Guide. When he was 7 years old O’Reilly won his first drawing competition and was offered a scholarship for an art institute which he obviously had to turn down. His love for drawing flourished into a passion for graffiti art and in 1988 Christian packed up his life and moved to the Bay Area where he began his tattoo journey. Over the last 30 years, Christian has been fortunate enough to travel coast to coast meeting some amazing people while gaining life experiences, and expanding his craft. Christian prides himself in being eclectic in different styles and genres of tattooing, but if you asked him to pick a favorite, hands down it would be anything derived from comic books, cartoons, or anime.
“ To me, tattoos are personalized graffiti. I look forward to helping you personalize your own.”
