Geno is from New York City and began drawing at an extremely young age. His love and passion for illustrating kept him away from the negative influences that surrounded him way too often growing up allowing him to become the artist he is today.
Inspired by Paul Booth, Geno began to study his work using pictures in tattoo magazines as his source of references to begin his career in tattooing.
