Born in Sherbrooke, Claudius first fell in love with tattoos while attending high school, where he would draw on his arm until his hand went numb. He went on to study Illustration and Design at Montreal’s Dawson College, and enjoyed a brief stint as a concept artist, working for local video game companies and music groups. Eventually he came back to his love of tattoos.
Claudius was a self-taught and versatile tattoo artist before he joined the team at Oly Anger Tattoo to specialize in realism. With the help of Oly Anger and other great artists, Claudius was able to hone his craft to become the dark realism artist he is today. He also writes and illustrates a series of graphic novels he hopes to publish, and it’s this love of myth and storytelling that finds its way into his work.
