My Story:

I am originally from Raton New Mexico and have lived in Denver since 1997. I have always been a traditional media artist, drawing and painting all my¬†life. A ball point pen, acrylic and watercolor is what I’m best at. I like to do portraits and surrealism with lots of detail. I am also a member of CHAC Art Gallery (Chicano Humanities Art Council). I started tattooing in 2006 apprenticing at a local shop where I worked for three years. I am a tattoo artist by appointment only now and I travel for conventions as well. I design most everything I tattoo and I work mostly in: realism, painting effects, surrealistic, big custom pieces and portraits are my favorite. I am now tattooing at Old Larimer Street Tattoos 2229 Larimer st Denver co 80205 If ¬†you’re interested in getting some work done let me know as soon as possible to make an appointment….. ¬† email: brian.ulibarri@gmail.com ¬†

I am originally from Raton, New Mexico and now live and tattoo in Denver, Colorado,

My tattoo journey started in 2007. I grew up loving art and sketching on all my friends notebooks, walls and my desks in school. I always knew I wanted to be an artist, the challenge was going to be how to do it for a living. I moved to Denver from New Mexico in 1997 to go to The Art Institute. I did graphic and web design and was really unhappy.¬†I was talking to my wife about how frustrated I was that I never got into¬†tattooing earlier in life. I went to bed that night feeling¬†discouraged. The next day my wife called all the shops in town until¬†one agreed to talk to me about an apprenticeship. That’s how it all¬†started for me. It was a rough start for me with my 9-5 job, a family and an apprenticeship.

My apprenticeship basically consisted of learning how to tattoo safely and quickly.I never got a chance to really be mentored by one tattoo artist but from the time I was very young I was surrounded by art. I learned a lot from my brother Eric and also had great art teachers.

I love realism but with an artistic and creative style to it. Surrealistic artists have influenced me my entire life. Portrait work is what I like the most. I like the challenge of trying to capture the likeness, character and emotion of a person.  I do lots of watercolor and painted effects in my tattoos  to give my tattoos a painted portrait look which comes from my fine art style.  I like both Black & Grey and Color equally, I let the subject matter and mood of the piece determine what I use.

My biggest tattoo influences as of now are Florian Karg, Rich Pineda and¬†Victor Chill. It’s a combination of styles and skills from these 3¬†artist that best describe where I want to go with my tattooing. However, I am becoming more inspired by every new artist I meet.¬†Everything inspires me, other people’s art, music, stories, lives¬†etc… What keeps me driven is to always push my abilities and always¬†test myself artistically. What keeps me passionate about art, my¬†family! Showing them that you can follow your dreams and do what you¬†love!

I am focusing mainly on portraits. I love doing movie and book themed tattoos the most, not only the character portraits but incorporating other elements of the story in the tattoo as well. I think all tattoos should tell a story and good stories make good tattoos!
