Felipe Kross hails from the Brazilian capital city of São Paulo. He was born in 1992. Coming from a family of artists, Felipe has had contact with the arts since childhood, when he grew up drawing his favorite fictional characters.
In high school Felipe began to have even greater contact with Literature and History, and began to elaborate and create ever more imaginative drawings. He worked for almost 3 years in technology as a trainee and professional designer using AutoCAD, but he decided to change career directions at the end of 2011, after he started tattooing in his spare time. After a long apprenticeship with master tattooer Paco Anes at his studio in 2013, Felipe decided to quit Design school and dedicate himself full time to tattooing.
Felipe began to develop his personal style by harmonizing both the ideas of his clients’ tattoos with his own particular style and background. At the beginning of 2016, together with Vinicius Lacerda tattooer, he founded “The New Black Studio”, located in Vila Madalena, São Paulo’s most artistic and bohemian neighborhood. The studio is dedicated entirely to black and gray tattoos, just as Felipe himself is dedicated to that line of work.
