Tattoo artist originally from Costa Rica, where at a very young age he was attracted to the art of tattooing. Hand in hand with his studies at the University of Costa Rica, which has a School of Plastic Arts, he developed a complete passion in the world of ink on the skin.
Close to 20 years old, Max was already a tattoo artist in training and with the passage of time he takes an inclination to work with a lot of color and with this his search has been to improve it and give it a style that little by little is recognized in his country and begins to attract international attention. This leads Max to create a seminar with which he has taken his knowledge and experience to several Latin American countries, leaving in each one their way of applying and solving the details that each artist seeks to improve their work.
His perseverance and search to improve every day have led him to meet great world-class artists and this opens the doors for him to work as a guest in some tattoo studios.
Now Max, as part of Miami Ink, continues to seek to grow as an artist and also to exhibit his work in a different way without neglecting his roots and his Studio 93 in his country, Costa Rica. His goals have no limits or a defined time and his career is evolving every day, all with the sole purpose of continuing to grow, improving and sharing his knowledge as a legacy for new artists.

Tattoo pigment consists of two parts; the pigment and the carrier. The composition of tattoo pigment varies from brand to brand. Different ink companies use different dispersion methods and different formulas. We believe less filler the better, but that’s up to the artists preference.
Shaking your ink.
Trust us, a fully blended ink is much easier to use and will give you the correct and desired effect. If the ink is allowed to separate and solidify on the bottom of the bottle, you don’t actually get the formulated amount of pigment dispersion. This can reduce the ink’s effective saturation and opacity. When the sediment at the bottom hardens, it can be a nightmare to mix properly, then colour inconsistencies can begin to occur. To ensure your ink has been shaken fully to prevent this; compare the bottom of the bottle to the top, to ensure all pigment has been disbursed correctly. If you see a marbled effect or streaks of colour, keep on shaking.
Another way to keep your inks unspoiled and sediment free is to keep smaller bottles around, especially if it’s a colour you don’t use often. Take time and think how often a pigment gets used before you decide how much to order. Your ink is less likely to have a lot of settling if it’s not around for long. We’re a fan of small bottles. They’re easier to store, cost less, take up less space, are easy for the artist to travel with and it encourages an artist to keep their ink supply fresh and health board compliant.
