Ink Master Willy Pena sheds light on the Tattoo Industry

Willy Mey Pena Lopez, known on social networks as @WillArte25 is a multi-award winning Venezuelan tattoo artist, with 10 international awards under his belt. He decided to take his vast experience developing realistic portraits, which is one of the most complicated specialties in the industry,  to the next level, to finally share his episodes, and sensitize the stories behind the ink.

The innate ability of Pena is remarkable, and has positioned his skills and techniques as one of the most renowned realistic portrait tattoo specialists. His talent has been garnered with 10 international awards, including the one obtained at the “Miami Tattoo Art Convention” in the city of Miami, the “Atlanta Tattoo Art Convention” in Atlanta, where he obtained first place in “Tattoo of The Day” among other 4 other awards, the “LA Tattoo Convention” in Los Angeles, California, “LA Golden State Tattoo Convention” also in Los Angeles, California, “St Petes Tattoo Convention” in Tampa Florida, “Convention of  Puerto Rico,” in Puerto Rico, among others.

“From day one when I decided to enter the world of tattooing, I was dazzled by the magic of portrait realism. 80% of my clients come to me seeking realistic portraits of relatives, their favorite artists or their loved ones. Willy said. “Tattooing faces is a very fragile process, considering that if the smallest detail is not done correctly, it can completely alter the appearance of the face and unfortunately the outcome will change. Therefore, it’s a huge responsibility knowing that people trust my work and skill, which for me is a huge honor.”, Pena exclaimed.

When asked what he enjoyed the most of his work Willy explains: “I really enjoy the creation process because the details that give life to the faces appear, such as the volume, the features of the face, the lips and ears, which give that 3D effect that makes you feel that the image is out of the skin and alive”.

The artist and painter on the rise, was exposed through his career to hundreds of amazing stories which led him to launch his upcoming platform called “MejorHablamos” both on Podcast and on YouTube, to share the most relevant stories in his journey captured behind the ink.

“ ‘MejorHablamos’ was born, because each person has a story to tell, and I am simply the intermediary who translates and captures not only their feelings, but also allows them to carry the stories of people that have marked their lives through ink.”

World-renowned artists, singers, actors and All-star athletes are all on his roster of canvases, proof of his great talent. Among the A-listers he’s tattooed are Venezuelan reggaeton and Latin pop singer Nacho, Spanish singer-songwriter Melendi, Baseball stars Asdrubal Cabrera and Marwin González, soccer star Juan Fernando Quintero, writer Andrés López of the “El Cartel de los Sapos” series, former Miss Venezuela Migbelis Castellanos, and Univisión Chef Jesús Díaz Chef, among countless others who have trusted in his high level professionalism and skill.

The man known as “Willarte” never imagined that what started as a hobby would become a passion that has now helped him transform so many lives. But it was that same passion which led them to start his own studio: “MejorArte” Tattoo Studio” in the city of Doral in South Florida. The name “MejorArte” — a Spanish-language play on words, meaning “Better Art” or “Better Yourself” — is a direct reflection of Willarte’s two most important goals, helping others better themselves by gifting them with better art.
