Ryan De Los Santos

Ryan De Los Santos found his start in the tattoo industry at the age of 24 at a Los Angeles street shop where he was given an introduction to the craft by his mentor Jay Miyagi. He went on to work under this mentor at California-based shop called Black Talon. It was during this time when Ryan developed his passion for Japanese style tattooing and realism. 

For the following decade, Ryan balanced his career in tattooing with a 9 to 5 job, often tattooing through the night in order to continue progressing his art and skill set within his preferred styles. In 2015, he made the leap to pursue tattooing full time at Shinko Tattoo. During the course of his tattooing career, Ryan has taken on a number of international guest spots and tattooed at numerous Australian conventions. 

When he’s not tattooing, Ryan is busy taking his children to various rehearsals and filming locations (he won’t tell you what movies they’re in though, trust me we’ve asked). 

You can find Ryan on Instagram and throughout the Shinko Tattoo Instagram and Facebook pages.
