Francis Flores has been practicing the art of tattooing since 2018. He hails originally from Boston cutting his teeth in the South Shore district of the city. Francis’s creativity started at an early age, from playing guitar in underground bands to painting graffiti. In early adulthood, Francis gravitated towards the culinary arts and worked in this field for over a decade. From there Francis took his passion for art and design into the tattooing world.
Francis’s preferred style is American Traditional tattooing. His artistry has always gravitated towards the bold clean linework, and solid colors found within this art style. In addition to this, he enjoys working with the powerful imagery associated with the style.
His interest in American Traditional tattoos was piqued by seeing these types of tattoos done on his peers as well as musicians he admired.
Francis has a natural ability to connect well with his clients and make them feel comfortable during the whole tattoo process. One of Francis’ greatest pleasures is ensuring that all clients, especially first-time tattoo clients are confident and at ease during their tattoo session. He feels that the experience is just as important and the finished product.
Francis tries to keep busy with creative projects of all mediums including acrylic painting, watercolor painting, and gouache. In Francis’ free time, he enjoys long scenic rides on his Harley Davidson. Francis has a great love for food and is a self-proclaimed foodie. His favorite foods include barbeque and pickles.
Whether it’s his own personal take on the ever-evolving style of Americana, or a straight up classic chosen from off his walls of hand drawn flash, Francis has got you covered. Custom designs and client design ideas are welcomed and encouraged. Francis finds it important to challenge himself and grow as an artist and looks forward to tattooing you!
