Vince Villalvazo began his professional tattoo career in the suburbs of Detroit. Although he loved Michigan, and all his friends and family who live there, he felt the desire to expand; Atlanta became his new home in 2008 and in August 2011 he opened Mystic Owl Tattoo with his wife Tara.

“It has always been a dream of mine to open my own studio,” says Vince.

“I just wanted to create a comfortable art driven studio for myself and other like-minded artists. I enjoy what I do for a living and I think it is important to enjoy the environment that we do our creating in.”

Vince enjoys various styles of tattooing but his preferred style is illustrative neo-traditional tattooing. He enjoys bold lines and bright colors and that is what his clients primarily go to him for.

“I am very thankful for my wonderful clientele; they usually give me a loose idea and let me go with it, and that is how the best tattoos are created.”

In his little spare time he enjoys spending time with his family and friends.

“I am more of a home body, I like to play Rock Band with my wife and friends,” says Vince.

When not at the studio or home he has bowling nights with all the artists and some close clients.
