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 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."

"With social media always changing, the importance of a professional website is imperative. I loved the design inspiration package they had me fill out to describe how I wanted my website to look. They were able to take my concepts and visualize them for me into a site that really felt individual and personal. I love that I can easily access and publish new news items and photos in an instant through the TattooNOW website. The staff is always professional, friendly and easy to reach. TattooNow has helped me reach a wider audience, allowing me to do more of the work I love!”

"Just got done watching the Jeff Gogue hand webinar. Best $150 I've spent in a while! Every single one that I've signed up for has been superb and really makes a difference for those of us living overseas who don't have access to conventions/seminars period. So this is definitely the next best thing and I'm thankful for having access to them."
