Carlos Torres has been tattooing for over 20 years and is mostly self taught. He worked at a couple of tattoo shops before he got his big break at So. Cal Tattoo in San Pedro, CA. It was there he learned the most and started to build his tattoo portfolio. Carlos specializes in black & gray realism and surrealism and loves creating original pieces. In addition to tattooing, he enjoys photographing his own reference materials, painting and traveling. Through his travels, Carlos has won awards including Best Small Black & Gray, Best Large Black & Gray and Best Backpiece. 

In October of 2017, Carlos opened his own studio, The Raven and The Wolves. This fine art gallery and tattoo studio is located in the heart of downtown Long Beach and is home to 8 artists.
