Today we’d like to introduce you to Fabio Montenegro.
Hi Fabio, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
My name is Fabio Montenegro, I am a tattoo artist. I have lived in Orlando since 2016; my specialties are fine lines, dot work, realistic tattoos and black and white. My style is very delicate, clean and detailed. I do not see this career as a job, I chose to tattoo because drawing is one of my passions and I enjoy what I do. I love talking to my clients, listening to their stories and hearing the meaning behind their tattoos. I am most proud of being my own boss and having my own studio where my clients can relax in a fun and abstract space.
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
It has not been an easy road getting to the place where I am right now. Every day I learn something new and I face challenges that make me grow as an artist and on a personal level. The challenges I face, along with my accomplishments, motivate me to be a better person and artist.
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I initially started my studies in graphic design and then I found myself leaning towards engineering. Little did I know what life had in store for my future. While working in the engineering field, I got my first tattoo and became friends with the artist, then I bought my first tattoo machine just for fun. I practiced enough to get the courage to ask my friend to let me do a small piece on them, fast forward till now, and here I am doing what I love. I have no regrets whatsoever. Sometimes you have to let go of your fears to succeed in what you’re truly passionate about. Something that sets me apart from others is my attention to detail and my ability to create fine lines and extremely delicate work. My clients love how realistic and dainty my pieces are.
Can you share something surprising about yourself?
Many people are very surprised to hear that I am a chemical engineer and that I worked in that field for almost a decade! I am very good with numbers (sometimes I feel a bit nerdy). My brand name is MontBlack, which is my last name, Montenegro, in English.
