My name is Dino, aka Pit. I was born on January 16th 1980 on the beautiful Caribean island of Curacao. First of all i’d like to thank ya’ll for visiting my website. They call me Pit because we used to have a lot of pitbulls at home, I grew up with them and often times I act like one myself. Haha. I’ve been busy now for 13 years with the art of tattooing. I’ve drawing since I was a kid, but I never really did anything with it until I got older. After I got my first 2 tattoos, I started to develop an interest for this style of art. Some friends of mine and I made our own tattoomachine with a pen and a small motor connected to it. My first step in the game was tattooing family and friends. After two years of tattooing on Curacao, I moved to Holland in 2000 to get a better knowledge of this form of art.

So I decided to find another job that would bring some money on the table and make tattooing my hobby. I worked for 8 years as an electrical mechanic and still stayed focused on developing my tattoo skills: a lot of drawing and working on my techniques. I had to learn it all by myself. In 2010 I decided to concentrate fully on tattooing. I moved to my new studio: the Nieuwe Ebbingestraat 72. I’m not yet finished though, I just got started, but I’m ready and keep on striving for the best quality. I am and will always be an all around tattoo artist, but I’ve noticed that over the years I developed a specialty in three-dimensional tattoo’s, portraits, black and grey, colored tattoos, Japanese, realistic tattoos and freehand, freestyle tattoos. Basically, I’m interested in all styles! You can always come by the studio, to talk about your future tattoo and to make an appointment .
