Kris “King” Garcia is a Miami native and local artist with a background in drawing, painting, illustration and sculpture that holds a degree in visual arts.
Kris started his tattoo apprenticeship in early 2018 under world class, veteran tattoo artists Eddy Ospina and Ami James at Division tattoo studio in Wynwood arts district.
He spent the next 3 years studying, drawing and painting along side heavy hitting tattoo artists such as: Ami James, Eddy Ospina, James Hamilton, Jose Cordova, Darren Brass, Chris Tamborelli and Felipe Reynoso at world famous Miami Ink in south beach.
Closely watching and analyzing the work of his mentors, he began tattooing in 2020 at Miami Ink tattoo studio as an apprentice tattoo artist. Cultivating his craft and sharpening his skills, he grew fond of the American traditional tattoo style as well as detail oriented, fine line, illustrative styles of tattooing which he currently pursues.
Kris has now been tattooing full time here at Lost Lake for about a year. He is looking forward to making connections with clientele in which to work on future tattoo projects.
