From Madrid, Spain.
Lives and works in Madrid.
Since childhood, Maria Roca has been involved with paint via drawing classes. In her adolescence she worked in hyperrealism and oil painting and graduated with her studies in graphic arts. She has been interested in tattoos from a young age, and was hooked after she finally got her first tattoo. At the age of 19 Maria started to look into tattoo art as a way of living and started a apprenticeship 2008 in Rome.
With more than 20 years experience as an artist, she became a full-time, international-renowned tattoo artist by working hard, drawing a lot and learning how to evolve without giving up her punk rock roots. This is embodied in her art designs with a strong social-political message.
