Victor Trujillo was born and raised in Placerville California where he spent the majority of his time drawing, rafting, and hunting. Victor was apprenticed by Flora Cloud of Gypsy Tattoo in Northern California where he was taught tattooing as an art form, rather than a trade. He instantly fell in love with tattooing. He was allowed by his mentor to begin tattooing the public after only one month of apprenticeship. Two years later, he was published in Tattoo Art International magazine and has since been published several more times in various tattoo publications.
