"I think tattooing is a relational art. I don't agree with people who call me a tattoo artist because I don't think it’s something that depends only on me," says Juan Carlos Mendoza.
Mendoza is a Nicaraguan artist who has built a client base and business from his creative tattoo designs.
"I started making tattoos five years ago. It was a strategy to make me economically independent of my father," he says. "I could draw, and I just had to learn the technique of tattooing."
