Dude!!!!! You are amazing!!! I definitely want you to help me with Pioneer Dezign. At this stage I just need some super simple artwork and some help with my ideas with the rough drafts for my logo. I will also be getting shirts from you as well. So when you have 30 minutes of free time I can explain in more detail. Plus I just want to say that I feel you would be one of the greatest assets to Pioneer Dezign. Thank you so much and hope to hear from you soon.

Just wanted to make sure that you are still at Tattoo Expressions in Pelham? You did some stars on my foot about a year ago and I showed you a butterfly tattoo with eyes in it that I wanted to get on my back. You figured then it would be about $250 and I wanted to see if I could send you the pic and verify price and go ahead and setup an appointment to get it done.

August 2nd, 2014Ethan

Incredible. Will be back soon for more tattoos. He was friendly and has incredible skill. A++++.

The design that you came up with for my tattoo was amazing. Your free hand skills are truly remarkable and I am very happy with the finished product.

A guy named Vincent from Spyders Tattoos in calera recommended you for a portrait tattoo. If you are interested I would like to email the photo to you. It does not seem very challenging for you based on what I have seen of your wevsite. Thanks for your time.

January 26th, 2013Jim Skinner

Soooo glad that I discovered your talents while surfing the Internet. Your work is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!!
I am a cartoonist but I have always admired the skill of caricaturists, especially Mort Drucker (MAD Magazine). I've often wondered what would we do if he retired or passed on. Who could capture the likeness as he does with his pen? I believe you, sir, could easily fill that void. Keep up the great work.

December 13th, 2012Jim Long

Rafael, I would like to see if you can work on my arm (circuit board tat) this Sat. maybe 5 or 6pm? let me know. Thanks, Jim

Hello Rafael. I met Todd Livingston this weekend at comic con. San Diego. I asked him about his work, and he told me that he is a writer and is gonna be starting to work for Americas Funniest home videos. I mentioned to him I am an aspiring writer and told him about what I am writing. He said I should contact you, becuase you may be interestes in my projects. I am writing a kids book where the parents are punk rockers and have tattooos. But I am also writing a mythology , about dark angels, the basic premise that since God loves all his children, he has angels for the misfits. So like I said I would apreciate hearing back from you. If in the very least some advice as to make my vision a reality.

July 7th, 2012Kyle Fine

Hey Rafael, you recently did a cartoon dog tattoo on my left arm. It looks great! Thank you so much! I am only going to come to

Rafael did some great work on my Tat, I am really loving it. The detail of the tat is sweet and very bold. The thing I liked the most about Rafael is that during the session we had a good time, it wasn't all business, it felt like we've known each other for years, so from now on Rafael is my tat artist for life, keep blessing us with the best work brother. Marcus B.

Hi RAF! I hope this finds you well. I am thinking of getting a forearm tattoo on my right arm of a design I have on an Affliction T-shirt. It's a Gothic cross with various design elements inside it. This is a link to the actual shirt. This is a better view of the same type cross I was thinking maybe a fleur di lis in the inner circle. Could you ballpark me a cost?
Tthanks so much!

Good luck in all you do. You seem very talented and with a personality like yours, you are destined to greatness! Keep up the awesome work. We will definitely be seeing you soon. Thanks again.

September 27th, 2009Nate

I had a tattoo done by Rafael this past weekend. It was a simple outline job, but it was exsquisite. He is a super-nice guy, and he is without a doubt the artist that I will request for now on. He was extremely easy to keep conversation going with and he really made the whole experience so much more enjoyable. I will definitely get more ink from him in the future. He was awesome. Thanks, Rafael.

September 20th, 2009Big Rob

What up big Raf?! You gotta put some ink on me soon!

September 20th, 2009Sam

I got a tattoo done by Rafael a couple of weeks ago at tattoo jungle. I got a tree done that I've been wanting for a long time, and it means a lot to me. I'm so glad that he did it because he did a great job. I'm looking forward to him working on my next piece.

August 30th, 2009Patricia Watson

The flowers that we showed you are more of what I am looking for but the design style is what I talked about in the earlier e-mail. As you can see I am very excited about another tattoo. Can't wait till Friday.

August 30th, 2009Patricia Watson

I found something I like, however I would like to make some changes to it. First I would like the color to be a bright deep purple for the flower color, I would also like to have flowers that would curl up under my breast too. The website I went to is Under stomach tattoos on the second page of tatts you will see a stomach design with flowers and butterflies. I tried to e-mail the picture to you, but am unsure if it worked. Please send me a quick e-mail just letting me know that you received this e-mail. Thanks Patricia

Hi Raf! It's Liz from Loonar Tattoo in MA. I used to be Al's apprentice. Great website! So happy to see you're doing well, you were always so kind and helpfull to me when I was getting started. I always meant to thank you! Are you still tattooing? Someone said you weren't. I still haven't had anyone work on the elephant you did on my back just incase you were still doing it. I'd love to have you finish it someday so I'm happy to wait. Write me back anytime. I look forward to hearing from you. Hi to the wife for me. -Liz Peterson
P.S- I did some work on Al today and was happy to find out you and I were his only former apprentices to tattoo him so far, pretty funny right?

January 16th, 2008Karen Betournay

I hope you are doing well in Florida.
I don't know if you remember me. I am the woman who you tattoed the golf hole on when you were at the Pisst Fish and the broken heart that you later filled in at Loonar.
I would like another tattoo and I am not planning a trip to Florida any time soon. Who should I go to up in western Mass? I "tracked" you down through Luis Ramos; if you remember, he is a friend of mine.
I LOVE your site by the way. You are truly an artist. You work is so compelling and "full". I don't know where to look first.
God bless you and your family with continued success and good health.
Karen Betournay (Holyoke)

Sorry it's been awhile been busy. Checked out your new work it awsome. Congrats on Tatua getting made into a movie. How's the family doing? Michelle went back to work alitte bit ago and we have Gavin in daycare. That shit is expensive. It's a damn good daycare but man it hurts writing that check every monday mornig, but Gavin likes it. He flirts with all the grils is aswome. He is 4 mounth old. Hes turning into this awsome little guy. I want to spend every second with him. Everyday he learns something new. He's my little monster. I love him man being a dad is awsome. Wouldn't trade it for anything.
I know it's been awhile since I talked to last about my tat.
I'm sorry about that I kind of left you hanging. Sorry about that brother. If your still interested in doing the tat for my son let me know. Hopeful i'll hear from you soon. Talk to you later

Hey Raf,
Do you remember me, I met you at Pisst Fish and followed you to Hadley. I worked on the helicopter and still do. I see that you have two of my pieces on your gallery the faces/angel of Bollt design. NICE, I'm honored. So anyway here is what I'm wondering, I'm coming to Tampa for a conference and leaving on the 16th, will be there at 10pm and leaving to return to Hartford on the 19th at 6pm. Flights are in Tampa Airport, any chance of hooking up with you for some art while I'm there.....I can rent a car and it should take about an hour or so to get to where you are....Let me know, I'm hoping that you can finish my sleave and or do some more back work. My cell is 413-330-6468.

Thanks Raf,
Chuck Margarites

Hey Rafy, This is Natasha from today. I decided to name the tat Isis instead, goddess of magic. I think you did a great job. You are truly talented. I'm already brain storming ideas for my second one. I was always nervous about taking the step of getting a tattoo, I couldn't have picked any one better. Thanks again and good luck in Florida!
