At this time Body Art Concepts is looking for just the right Tattoo Artists to make our vision a reality. We are looking for Artists who can make their Artwork pop, come to life and bring out the 3D effects of true Tattooing! We want Artists whose lines are strong, consistent, bold and straight. Must be able to work with multiple colors for intense shading effects. Also, must have an imaginative and creative mind to be able to help potential clients make decisions on their forever Body Art.

Captain Lu Figueroa

Captain Lu at age 5, already a legendary Tattoo Artist in the making!

Captain Lu has been a Custom Tattoo Artist since 1971 and is now coming to Body Art Concepts for "An Event To Remember"

Even as a young child, Captain Lu's eye for detail, steady confident hand, fascination with all forms of art and his "thinking outside the box" creativity was recognized. This opened the doors for him, at age 15, to start his first Sign Painters Apprenticeship with Zerker Signs.

At the age of 17, Captain Lu was introduced to the world of Tattoos. Informally and in every way he could, he started to study the Art Of Tattooing and had an immediate connection to all aspects of the industry.

At the age of 21, the first doors opened for Captain Lu to enter the world of Professional Tattooing. He has Tattooed throughout the United States and 3 other countries. Now, 48 years later, he is Tattooing better than ever!


All Custom Tattoo Artwork

All of Captain Lu's Tattoo Artwork is custom designed by him and created individually for each client. 

Captain Lu is quoted as saying: "I listen to each and every person that comes to get tattoo artwork by me. I take their ideas, thoughts, sketches and pictures and combine it with my 48 years of experience and design something special and unique for each person." 

Please visit Captain Lu on Instagram to see some of his amazing Tattoo Artwork.
