Reuben Villarruel was born in 1982 in LIberty, Utah to remarkable parents whom he remains very close to. They encouraged Reuben's talents in art which he's been creating as long as he can remember. After being sponsored in a band, Reuben was asked to do a traditional, professional Apprenticeship in a local shop.
16 years are now under this Artist's belt in the professional industry and there's no sign of him stopping anytime soon. Rather than specializing in one specific genre or style, Reuben strives to continually diversify himself by always taking on a variety of styles in his artwork. Examples of his past works clearly display his broad ranging abilities from Portraiture and Bio-organics to Animals, Fantasy, and Floral in both vibrant color and rich black and grey.
Outside of tattooing, Reuben is always creating art in some fashion whether it's on the traditional canvas, or in other forms of creative expression all together such as his music. Over the past nearly 15 years Reuben has fronted and toured with incredible bands such as Sindolor and Vinia. While he's not currently performing vocals with a band, music remains a strong passion for Reuben.
When Reuben isn't engaged in some form art, he enjoys going to musems, traveling, live music, cinema, and well produced television. And of course, he loves spending time with his parents, family, and circle of friends.
Reuben has been a long-time friend of ours and we're very proud to have him as a part of our AoYS Family. Set an appointment with this awesome individual today! And remember, in Reuben's own humorous words, "I do tattoos, motherfucker!"
