I was born and raised in Chicago and lived in a small town in Mexico from the age of 11 to 18. There I lived a very humble life from what I was used to as a child growing up in Chicago. It definitely helped build my hard working character. I started messing around with tattoos when I was about 16 or 17, tattooing friends and family as somewhat of a hobby. Tattooing intrigued me and I was determined to figure it out. At the time, I never thought I would be doing this for a living. I’ve always loved great art as well as the art of tattooing.
About 9 years ago, I started tattooing friends as a hobby and a friend recommended that I buy professional equipment, and I began tattooing on a regular basis, and haven’t stopped since. Being both a self taught artist and tattoo artist there was definitely a lot of bumps in the road with a lot of sacrifice. But it has definitely been a great learning experience and it proves that when you work hard and are determined to learn, you can accomplish anything.
During my career, I've turned to some of the best artists, both old masters in art and new artists in the tattoo industry, as well as many other forms of art and craftsmanship and nature for inspiration. Knowing that tattooing is a vast industry, I had to push myself to learn and recreate realism - to be able to stand out amongst great tattoo artists. I continue to work hard to perfect my craft. I consider myself to be a true well rounded tattoo artist- able to tattoo anything in any style. My extensive portfolio displays all arenas of tattooing.
3 years ago, I opened Dark Water Tattoos and last year, a t-shirt company Dark Water Press with my future wife Amy. My 3 beautiful kids are the reason for my hard work and ultimately my success.
David Joseph Kline has been in the tattoo industry for over 6 years as an apprentice, a piercer, a shop manager and as a full-time artist. After four years of art in High School, David went to College of DuPage were he majored in Fashion and Art. He left college to work for an Office Product Co. working in sales. While having a conversation with his brother (Dennis from Dark Water Tattoos) about how he missed being creative Dennis suggested he leave his sales job and become his apprentice. David has been tattooing ever since and loving every moment.
David has been with Dark Water Tattoos since 2010. He is a custom artist who loves working with colors and styles such as Neo Traditional, New School, and a simpler form of Realism.
His favorite thing about tattooing is the everlasting bond between the client and artist.
I'm a tattoo artist born and raised on the west side of Chicago. I got into tattooing because I wanted to have my art appreciated the same way I appreciate it. Unfortunately, going to school for art didn’t seem like an economical decision, given many of my friends had a very difficult time finding jobs in the field, so I quickly worked to get into Dental school instead. I graduated with my Bachelors in Biology but didn’t have any real connection to the field, so I decided to try out tattooing rather than take the next step towards becoming a dentist. Instead, I got an apprenticeship through Jose Perez Jr. and haven’t looked back since.
I’m still developing and growing as an artist but the focus of my tattoo career is primarily photo realism, which includes portraits. I tend to focus on beautiful images, most commonly beautiful girls because I think there is a natural beauty in the soft textures of the face and I believe that they are great for telling deep intimate stories. I’m a pretty down to earth guy so feel free to ask me any questions about myself or possible tattoo ideas you have. My philosophy in life is to live stress free, so I strive to keep things straight forward and uncomplicated. Other than that, I look forward to meeting you and working on your next beautiful piece of art…
Adam Anthony Aguas was born in 1986 in Chicago Illinois. Adam has always had a deep emotional passion for art and exploring his creativity, drawing for as long as he could remember.
“All throughout my educational career I spent more time drawing in class than anything else. It’s always taken me to a good place in my mind where all the chaos dissipates and calm waters reside.”
In the summer of 2007 Adam picked up a tattoo machine for the first time and things were never the same. Tattooing has taken him to so many great places and has allowed him to meet so many amazing artists. He specializes in creating custom one of a kind tattoos for his clients. Putting every piece of him self in every sketch and tattoo, making sure no two are identical. From small colorful pieces to full sleeves Adam always has fun tattooing any style and putting his own unique “look” and style on anything he can.
Adam also enjoys using many different layering techniques in some of his tattoos, especially multi session tattoos. Giving a very unique look to his pieces that you cannot achieve in a single session, but still can do an amazing one session piece when possible.
“I love being able to layer pigment in the skin, giving a very luscious look to the color and shape of the tattoo. In the same way I would paint a canvas. Achieving this look is not a practice you see in many local tattooists with a few amazing exceptions. But when you take your time and exercise patience, it truly shows in the look of the tattoo as well as the healing and longevity. In the end I think that should be every tattoo artist’s goal.”
From paint and pencil to needle and ink, Adam’s passion for his medium is one that is undeniable. He truly loves what he does, and will never stop creating as long as he is free to explore his imagination and go the extra mile for his clients.
