Alberto Cretella


Hi! I'm Alberto Cretella, a young tattoo artist from Padua, Italy. Since I was a child, I have always been passionate about art and architecture. In fact, I decided to study architecture at university, but after a few years, I realised it wasn't my thing. That's when my older brother, who is also a tattoo artist, introduced me to the world of tattooing.

From that moment on, I dedicated myself to learning everything I could about the world of tattooing. I spent hours and hours watching videos, reading books and learning from other tattooers. Finally, I decided that I wanted to make this passion my career and started working as a professional tattoo artist.

Since 2014, I have been living in Granada, Spain, and I have had the opportunity to perfect my technique in different tattoo styles such as Blackwork, Dotwork, Ornamental, Tibetan, Suminagashi, among others. I love experimenting with different styles and techniques, and I am always looking for ways to improve my art.

I have had the opportunity to tattoo in various places such as Italy, Germany, Chile, Malaga, Madrid, Barcelona and Granada. For me, there is nothing more satisfying than seeing the happiness and excitement on my clients' faces when they see their finished tattoo. I am very grateful for the opportunity to do what I love every day and to be able to share my passion with the world.

1. Client contact

 The first step is for the client to contact me through my social networks, website or telephone, and in this way request information or make an appointment for their tattoo.

2. Receipt of references and ideas from the client

Once I have contact with the client, I ask them to provide me with references or ideas they have in mind for their tattoo. I listen carefully to their expectations in order to offer them the best possible service.

3. Personalised quotation

After I have a clear idea of what the client wants, I provide a tailor-made quote. This quote will depend on several factors such as the complexity of the design, the size of the tattoo and the time it will take.

4. Design and face-to-face appointment

If the client is satisfied with the sketch, we arrange a face-to-face meeting where we agree on the final details of the design, measure it on the client's body and set a date for the tattoo to be done.

5. Working sessions

Depending on the size and difficulty of the design, the tattoo can be completed in one or several sessions. I make sure to schedule the necessary appointments to complete the tattoo effectively and efficiently.

6. Method of payment

Finally, when the tattoo is finished, we agree on the method of payment. The client can pay in one lump sum or in instalments, depending on the work sessions and the previous agreement with me.

I hope this information has been useful for you to get to know my work process. If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment, please don't hesitate to contact me, thank you for considering me as your tattoo artist!
