Vicente Rios a.k.a Chente Rios, began his career as a tattoo artist during a rough season in California around the mid-90s. Growing up in East
LA there were always tattoo machines around his neighborhood. It wasn’t until he turned nineteen that he actually started taking his tattooing seriously.
Obtaining a job at a respectable tattoo shop was a difficult journey full of setbacks for Rios.
Within that difficult road he was lucky enough to find people who share the same passion and who he considers to be true friends. He currently owns and runs Under the Gun Tattoo Shop for over five years.
