Today we’d like to introduce you to Cyril (Madball) Gomez.
Cyril (Madball), can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I was born in Long Beach, Ca in 1979 and raised in Carson, Ca. I started drawing early in my life, inspired by my brother Gary Gomez whose artistic skills I admire. I never intended to become a tattoo artist. Years later, I instantly fell in love with the art depicted in tattoos when my friend made me a homemade tattoo machine. I was tattooing with a homemade tattoo machine for about 4 years until I merged into a professional tattoo machine, I haven’t stopped tattooing since, always wanted to get better until this day. That was 16 years ago and today I own and operate Madball Tattoos in Carson, Ca, catering to all styles with an emphasis on black and grey and color, including portraits, Polynesian tribal, Japanese, lettering, etc.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I’ll have to say sometimes its ups and downs, definitely a struggle. You have to love and stick to what you do! But actually, one thing that is tuff is, having to manage time.
