Ace Vencenzo is a bold American traditional Tattooer from Chicago, IL. He's been tattooing professionally since 2013 after he finished his apprenticeship at Walker’s Point Tattoo in Milwaukee, WI. Ace later worked under his mentor Sam Bielinski at Atomic Tattoo until he moved to the Bay Area in 2017 to tattoo alongside Joey Cassina at Ocean Avenue Tattoo. Ace is a Trans man who has stories about tattooing earlier in his career as a femme presenting lesbian woman. From local street shops to private studios, Ace tells all about his experiences and how moving to the Bay changed his life forever. Ace shares stories with us about finding the right shop to thrive in and self motivated mantras on inner peace and staying kind; when you can, of course.
"I absolutely love the website that TattooNOW has done for me! With being a new shop owner and having a lot on my plate designing a webpage was one of the last things on my mind. TattooNOW was able to totally help me in designing my page and I receive compliments from my clients from it all the time! My shop is in a little remote town and over 50% of my clientele comes from this website! People come from all over the country to my little town in Missouri. It's amazing the power of the Internet these days. I don't know what I would've done without this website!!”

"I am so happy with the redesign. You’ve exceeded my expectations and it’s been a great experience working with Aaron, the designer. I felt like we were well matched. The site reflects the aesthetic I was trying to create and everything was done rather quickly. The channels of communication were open, I could tell I was being listened to and I think the cohesion of my site reflects that. I’m very happy with the look and function of adamlauricella.com -Thank you Gabe, Brian, Aaron and the rest of TattooNOW.com”

"I can say without reservation Gabe Ripley's webinar, and the information presented, was one of the keystones to my career choices and direction the last year. I often quote much of what I learned not only to others, but to myself as well as a reminder to stay on track. I've taken the webinar twice and will purchase it if ever made available on dvd. I can't recommend it highly enough."
