Mario was born in Colorado. He attended the fine arts program at Metropolitan State College of Denver; but not understanding how to grade art, he moved to the Exercise Science program. He graduated from college with a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science. It wasn’t until seven years later that he decided he wanted to pursue art. In 2017, Mario got his first tattoo in his two-bedroom apartment. Nowadays, he is a talented tattoo artist and proud owner of R3hab Ink Tattoo Studio. Mario inks in black and grey and surrealism tattoo styles.
