Black Diamond Tattoo Parlor was established in 2016 by tattooist Gabino Soriano who specialized in contemporary tattooing in the US. As tattoo art went through a renaissance in the nineties both artistically and technologically Gabino witnessed the explosion in popularity and the infusion of young people interested in tattooing coming from diverse backgrounds such as fine arts training and graffiti artists.

Traveling extensively through the nineties and into the 21st century Gabino worked with professional tattooists all over while building a team of tattooing and piercing professionals that carry on the traditions of tattooing and continue to explore new techniques in order to offer all styles of work to our clients.
