Alex de Pase was born in Grado, Italy in 1975. He was first introduced to tattoo art at a very young age, 14 years, by an acquaintance who had learned the skill in prison. The two began tattooing with a home made tattoo kit consisting of bic pens and household needles. Today, de Pase is one of the most renowned realistic tattoo artists, specializing in beautiful, photorealistic portraits.
Many of Alex de Pase’s tattoo designs have decorative elements built into the tattoo art work. Flowers, paisley patterns and sugar skull patterns all feature heavily in Alex de Pase’s tattoo art, adding to the appeal of his designs. Many artists struggle with realism even on a stable, 2-dimensional surface like paper, but Alex de Pase’s talent, skill and 20 years of tattoo experience allow him to bring the art of hyper realism to the world of tattoos, creating realistic designs on the soft, pliable and curved surfaces of the human body.
