Romeo Lacoste (@romeolacoste)
Los Angeles, CA
Romeo Lacoste knew he wanted to be a tattoo artist at 17. After getting turned down by 40 shops, he persevered and finally landed an apprenticeship. His hard work throughout his four years of tattooing has paid off. At 24, his work has already been featured in national and international tattoo magazines. Romeo made a plan to capitalize on the music industry, and it's working. He started tattooing for his friends' bands and eventually tattooed on the Warped Tour. Romeo usually tattoos rock bands and rappers, but enjoys listening to mostly New Kids on The Block and Justin Bieber.
