Ignacio Suárez “Cacho” Thriving as a Tattoo Artist and Inspiring Young People to Do Things They Enjoy

Life decisions often come with tough choices, and often, choosing a path that makes one happy is always the best, no matter how unpopular that path is. As a lover of art from a very young age, Ignacio Suárez “Cacho” grasped this concept early and has gone through life doing things he enjoys and built a career out of them at different points in his life.

Ignacio Suárez “Cacho” is a tattoo artist from Mexico City but based in Los Angeles, working at one of the world’s most famous tattoo shops, The California Dream.

Now plying his trade as a tattoo artist, he has his sights set on achieving massive success and inspiring the world with his story.

Cacho’s specialty lies in single needle/fine line tattoo, and for a career that he took up professionally three years ago, he has become highly sought-after with an impressive clientele made up of celebrity clients like Nicole Williams English, Sophia Culpo, Katee Sackhoff, Tiffani Thiessen, Candace Bure, Stephen Boss, Joel de León, Victor Webster, and many more.

Making connections with people and impacting their lives positively is Cacho’s biggest drive. The tattoo world also gives him the avenue to meet people who have profound effects on his life daily. “Being a tattoo artist has changed my life significantly. I have been opportune to meet people who appreciate art and the craft of details. Many people interested in tattoos have deeper meanings beyond just a ‘drawing’ on their bodies, and I’m happy to bring those ideas to life for them. My craft is my art, and anyone that appreciates it the same way I do will always be welcome to sit in my chair,” Cacho said.

More than being a tattoo artist, Ignacio Suárez’s high level of creativity has placed him uniquely in the position to branch into other fields like photography, architecture, illustration, animation, and many more. Honing his artistic talents from a young age is one of the best things he did for himself, as it has helped him carve a niche for himself and bring beautiful art to life from mere ideas.

Getting to learn more about the things that have the most meaning to people is one of the things he enjoys the most about his job. With his success, he hopes to become a source of inspiration for other young people so that they can follow their dreams and be happy. He’s deeply committed to making everyone understand that their life path is up to them and that doing the things that make them happy is one of the best ways to live well.
