If you are headed out for a Friday night in Mexico City with your best friends, where do you go, and why?
Depends on what mood I’m in but I love going to a cute mezcal bar downtown for the vibes or a cheeky wine bar in Condesa/Roma if I’m feeling fancy.
We love that you are a tattoo apprentice. Tell us more about the vibe of your work and what inspires you?
I love working with color in tattoos.. I am heavily influenced by films, song lyrics I connect with and my own painting exploration. Taking on a naïf aesthetic with strong shapes. Cute but deadly.
Describe your personal style in 5 words or less......GO!
Modern with a sophisticated edge.
During our shoot, you guys were blasting so much amazing Spanish music in the van...who are your top three Spanish speaking music artists that we should know about for sure!
I’m currently hooked on Sen Senra, Luis Miguel and Almendra. I recently rediscovered them in an old playlist and it’s been playing on loop.
We are always on the hunt for interesting, inspiring, out of the way places to eat when we are in Mexico City---what is your favorite?
Depends on what I feel like but I would say a sushi roll or nigiri from San-Tō, La Barra de Fran for some spanish food or Sartoria when I’m craving pasta and wine.
Why do you think people are so obsessed with Mexico City? What is her secret!
For me the main reasons would be the food and the cultural richness; amazing food, the art scene is really interesting, so many museums, great music and there's really always somewhere to visit. There’s just so much depth in Mexico’s culture even living here for my whole life I feel I still have a lot to explore.
