Sebastian and Dee-No Skin Policy

Social media is an amazing tool when you need a quick dose of amazing art. I happened to notice a post by the manager of one of my favorite tattoo artist mentioning their arrival in the east bay. Eager to get a new piece of ink I jumped at the chance to book a spot with the well known D.c artist Sebastian.


IMG_2169-e1454914761214Sebastian is known for his vibrant customized one of a kind pieces and the unique way he tattoos beautifully crafted art on melanated skin. I had the opportunity to talk with the D.c artist of No Skin Policy and his manager Dee whom I like to call ” Uncle Dee” due to his youthful wisdom and uncle isms’. Although the pain of a buzzing tattoo machine against the shin can be a little distracting I had a wonderful time getting the inside scoop on the d.c art scene, tattooing and more.
