Victor Portugal

Visions Through Darkness

Seminar 2024

Hi my name is Victor Portugal, tattooer for over 30 years, born in Uruguay, living and working in Cracow, Poland and Texas, USA. 

Tattooing for me is a ritual of bringing out contrast and depth of a design & building up a detailed texture is what gives a realistic feel to the oniric character of my art. For that reason I decided to elaborate this professional Workshop/ Seminar that I'll share with all of you. It's a lifelong passion that makes me strive for perfection.

Welcome to my ultimate Black & Grey Seminar where I'll be sharing everything I've learned in the past 3 decades of tattooing. I'm excited to teach and help others learn from my experience. Let us embark on this educational journey together and explore the fascinating world of Surrealistic tattooing.
