In 2002 Espi opened his studio The Mausoleum with the motive of creating tattoos in a private setting. In keeping the Tibetan philosophy of “Nomads and Artisans”, the studio moves periodically and hosts guest artists from around the world, which in turn nurtures the ideas and energy of the studio.
Espi focuses on creating tattoos with good intentions for good people. The base for his tattooing style is a mixture of Horimono (traditional Japanese tattoo), Tibetan art, and Southern California style black and grey tattooing. The art is heavily influenced by his Mexican heritage, Tibetan teachings, Catholic art, golden era monsters, love for pre-50′s leadsled cars and the antique.
We thank you for taking an interest in our efforts.
