My name is Marcos Ortega, born in Madrid, Spain. I started my journey in tattooing back in
2012 in London before relocating to Berlin a year later. I specialize in American Traditional
and Japanese styles. I opened Stay Free Tattoo with Sindy Melo in 2020.
My influences draw heavily from the 60s-70s American traditional flash, as well as the 80s
and 90s Californian traditional tattoo style. I love mixing Oriental and Japanese folklore with
Western traditional tattoos, incorporating elements from traditional Japanese tattoos and
Ukiyo-e. Additionally, I have a passion for exploring and collecting rare tattoo books, vintage
Lambretta and Vespa scooters, and records! Tattooing is my true passion. I find joy in every
aspect, whether its doing small fine line tattoos or crafting elaborate backpieces, sleeves,
cover-ups, or body suits.
Feel free to approach me with custom ideas or explore my own designs—I am always
enthusiastic to start a new project!
