We had the good fortune of connecting with Rogg Tattooman and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Rogg, why did you decide to pursue a creative path?
I’ve always had the ability to visualize and create as long as I can remember!! I can see it clear as day in my mind and I bring it to life so I figured as the saying says “ you can do whatever you put your mind to” I’m taking the advice and creating this world into a better place😎 being a artist I see the joy that art brings, the world will be meaningless without it.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Well my story is a lot so I can try to make it simple, I came from a very small world to where there was no positive roles/idols just survival and I always had the ability to draw and create to where I was actually getting paid to draw fake tattoos on kids/classmates even for some teachers lol I was able to eat pretty good off the little hustle in middle school😎 took me to get older to realize I can really do something with these talents! I don’t have ego problems or anything like most artist just cause they became good in a certain field, I’m just a natural and willing to take on challenges when it comes to different styles of art and once accomplished I’m on to the next big thing, to me that what makes me different from most artists. What makes me most proud about this is that the mind frame I had before and the direction I was once going in life would led me to nothing, I’ve made a mistake at 17 which caused made me a felon, I took responsibility and changed my life around by becoming a artist. Nowadays I’m making my own money and in business for myself!! It’s just up for me from here on out😎 so to the world and viewers, read my story and just know nothing can stop you but yourself, keep rising!!!!

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
This is not a good question to ask me lol, I don’t go out man, I’m a go to work and get back home to family type guy, I eat and stuff but not really to much longing and going out, I do nature trails and like to see the world but as far as eats y’all can come to Houston and go to willies icehouse they’re good🤷🏽‍♂️Lol

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
To answer this question with honesty I have no idols, mentors etc. everything about me is self taught!! I didn’t have many doors to open for me so I created my own path.
