He was one of the core tattoo artists on the reality television show LA Ink. Miller specializes in black and gray portraits and dragon art.
London Reese- “I am merely a man; suffocated by art.” London is a southern California native who loves life and all of the art in it. He grew up with a pencil in his hand and an unrelenting passion for illustration. Music has always been an important part of his life and continues to inspire all of his artistic endeavors. He is a self-taught tattoo artist. He did his first few tattoos in 2006 while studying art in college. After a bit of development and some real soul searching, he began tattooing full-time in 2008. Graphic realism and illustrative tattooing have become his main interest and focus in his work. He is constantly striving to progress as an artist and hopes that it comes through in every tattoo that he does. “The art of tattooing is sacred to me and I am honored to be a part of such an amazing community of artists. Cheers.”
Johnny Quintana was born on April 6, 1979 in San Bernandino, California. His family then moved to Guanajuato, Mexico, where he lived for the first ten years of his life. Johnny was exposed to the beauty of the land, the people, the language and dialects and the amazing landscapes of Mexico. The setting of his childhood was surrounded by the richness and purity of the culture which brings about a lot of influence in his early works. Most of Johnny’s early works and drawings reflect the colorful and diverse Mexican culture: The people, their homes, market places, fields, churches, and towns. Drawing and painting were constant companions throughout his school years. Art became his constant outlet for expression. Johnny wanted to exhibit his own personal interpretations of what this land offered his eyes.

He has built a loyal following and, in 2012, decided to open up his own studio in order to accommodate the work load. Allan Rivera met with close friend Joe Diorio, and within months of their discussion, the two opened for business. Allan decided to create his ideal tattoo studio: a comfortable environment, a gracious attitude, and above all else, a fervent desire to continue perfecting his craft. San Clemente was the obvious location choice as Allan has grown up and currently lives just a few short miles north on PCH.
