I met Rich Zapata at 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu in Las Vegas Nevada, and he’s here to talk with us about his career as a Tattoo Artist. Join us as we discuss his past as a musician, of course some jiu-jitsu chat, and the ins-and-outs of being a tattoo artist in the highly competitive Las Vegas market.

In his own words: Based out of Las Vegas, I am a black and grey fine line and Neo-Traditional style tattoo artist. Located in the Arts District in Las Vegas, I own my private studio where I tattoo from. I also do graphic design, murals, and other forms of art. If you’re interested in a tattoo or any one of my services, feel free to reach out via email, phone number or fill, out a tattoo request form. and I will get in contact with you.

This podcast is paid for and brought to you by…. by me, Scott Groves 🙂

Because I think these kind of long form conversations are valuable, I pay for 100% of the production of this show out of my pocket. This channel is FAR from monetization and because of the subject matter, may never be monetized.

I am a Mortgage Loan Officer & Loan Officer Coach in real life. It’s the money that I earn, from helping home-buyers and home-owners obtain home-loans, that pays for this show. If you, your friends, or your family are looking for a home loan from an honest Loan Officer, please contact me at [email protected]

I can do the loan for you (our team is licensed in 8 states) – OR – I can refer you to an amazing loan officer in the state where you’re searching. ON WITH THE SHOW!!!
