Bio

Carlos And Danielle own Primal Instinct Tattoo and are very proud to support an amazing team of artist and apprentices. They take great care in providing a safe and comfortable environment for all artist to thrive and do amazing tattoos.

Carlos Immigrated from Mexico at a very young age and grew up in Northern California. He always had a love of art and design but never thought he could make a career from his art. It wasn’t until his fellow Marines asked him to start tattooing them because of the drawings and sketches they saw hung in Carlos’s barracks room. Even though this was not the correct way of learning to tattoo, Carlos fell in love with the medium and decided to pursue a tattoo apprenticeship after his Military service was complete in 2007. That is also the year he would meet his future Wife, Partner and best friend Danielle. Carlos and Danielle Have been in Alaska since 2011.

Carlos handles a wide range of styles inspired by nature, Hispanic culture and military service. His preferred styles are black and grey, neo traditional compositions and geometric pattern tattoos. Carlos is very fortunate and appreciates his customers trust in designing their large custom tattoos.

What a journey this tattoo was, Chelsea and I worked together for over a year to get this done.  I loved her idea and had a blast making it come to life.  The idea was that the compass in the middle of the arm would point to areas that meant alot to her. @c.adams13 Thank you for the trust and your time!!!

Hey everyone,  took a couple weeks off for the holidays, I'm back and will be getting back to everyone who has sent me any DMs, thanks everyone for your patience. Ready for a new year!!! Although 2020 has alot I'm happy to leave behind, I still had some great times, made some awesome new friends and did some really fun tattoos. One of my favorite one sessions tattoos from last year.  All you Star Trek haters out there can f*ck off, live long and prosper bitches.  Haha awesome Klingon skull tattoo on a rad dude @harveyg1225. For those of you who don't know that's a D'k Tahg knife, one of the many klingon battle blades. #tattoo #tattoos #inked #tattooed #guyswithtattoos #girlswithtattoos #tattooartist #tattooedgirls #tattooedguys #startrek #startrektattoo #klingon #klingontattoo #rosetattoo #deathbeforedishonor #neotraditionaltattoo #nerdytattoos #nerdytattoosdaily #trekker #videogametatts @startrek #spacetattoo  #knifetattoo #nerdtatts #nerdtattoos4life #traditionalskulltattoo #skulltattoo

Just a splash if color on a black tattoo can look awesome, but not too much! We finished @zlunn11 nordic sleeve last night, saved the best spots for last lol. #tattoo #tattoos #inked #guyswithtattoo #girlswithtattoos #tattooartist #tattooedgirls #tattooedguys #tattooed #blacktattoo #blackandgreytattoo #nordic #nordictattoo #viking #vikingtattoo #vikingcompass #celtictattoo #vikingship #odin #odintattoo #huginnandmuninn #primalak #alaskatattoos #alaskatattooartist #primalinstincttattoo #anchoragetattoos #fenrir #fenrirtattoo
