Although Fonzy is well known for his airbrush art, he also dabbles in pinstripe, digital work, and more recently, he started tattooing on a regular basis. Initially, he began to tattoo around ten years ago, but did not put too much time into tattooing because he was doing a lot of murals at the time. As he has started to concentrate on his tattoo art, he has built up quite a client base. Like his airbrush art, he is striving to be the best tattoo artist he can be by practicing and fine-tuning his techniques. Like many of his fellow artists, Fonzy feels that the tattoo culture offers something different artistically, and what he learns in tattooing can be applied to his other artistic mediums.
In late 2010, Fonzy opened Greaskull Tattoo Alley in Fullerton California. The studio is a place for Fonzy to tattoo as well as draw, paint, and airbrush. People can also come in to Greaskull and purchase his art work. Fonzy also started a clothing brand called Greaskull as well. As of right now, the clothing brand consists of tee shirts with Fonzy’s artwork, but will eventually be expanded to a full line of merchandise with his designs.
With the opening of Greaskull Tattoo Alley, we asked Fonzy if he had any other plans for the future. He responded, “Well, I have a lot of goals for the future, but sometimes it’s better living in the present, because if you are always thinking of the future, you don’t realize that you have to do better things in the present to have a better future.” He ended his response with this statement; “People always dream, but you have to wake up and start doing your own thing and live your dream.” Judging on Fonzy’s accomplishments, he has been wide awake, doing his own thing and living his dream since he was a young child.
