Meet Manny Almonte, the skilled owner of Red Dragon Tattoo, who is passionate about creating beautiful and unique tattoo designs. Originally from the Dominican Republic, Manny migrated to the US at the age of 16 to continue his education in art and design. After 19 years in the industry, Manny has become one of the most sought-after tattoo artists, honing his craft to perfection.
Manny’s journey into the world of tattooing began at a West Village tattoo shop, where he worked airbrushing clothes. Fascinated by the art of tattooing, he began to ask questions and learn more about the craft. Over time, he became a self-taught tattoo artist, creating intricate and stunning tattoos that leave his clients coming back.
Manny’s goal is to be the best tattoo artist in the world and charge the price his art is worth without having to negotiate with his clients. He takes great pride in the quality of his craftsmanship, reliability, and friendly atmosphere, which he feels greatly contributes to his success.
It’s not all about the shop with Manny, he also enjoys spending time with his family and painting while working on a side project to develop a premium tattoo lotion, which he believes will change the tattoo care industry.
Make sure to follow along with Manny’s journey and he continues to make a name for himself across the tattoo industry.
