When Ralph Chaviano was a little kid, his father would bring home reams of copy machine paper from the office. Pops would go down to the basement of their Brooklyn brownstone and place the packaged stacks in neat piles on the concrete floor. Whenever Chaviano completed a chore or brought home good grades, his dad would hand him a ream so Ralphie could draw cartoon characters and other whimsical doodles for as long as he wanted. Some three decades later, Chaviano's nickname, "Image," rings throughout the 305. "I get satisfaction from people trusting me with their skin and letting me draw something on them that will last the rest of their lives," he says while etching a koi fish onto a customer's left bicep. The 35-year-old artist got his break seven years ago in New York's Greenwich Village, working for celebrity tattoo artist Jonathan Shaw. Two years ago, Chaviano opened his own shop in the City of Progress to be closer to his family. In that time, he's built a steady stream of local and national celebrity clientele such as rapper Fat Joe's protégé Pistol Pete and mixed martial arts brawler Rene "Level" Martinez. "Hialeah is my home," Chaviano says enthusiastically. "I get a lot of love in this city." A good-sized tattoo will run you $150 to $200.

I have been an apprentice for IMAGE 6mo. and i would not apprentice with anyone else he is a BEAST with amazing skills. If you want your tatt done right and looking fresh this is the place to go. I have had the pleasure to see him working on crazy pieces and everyone always leaves happy. no bullshit. his work speaks for itself.

Image is definitely the best artist in town. He has been my tattoo artist going on two years now. His attention to detail is out of hand. If you are thinking of getting a tat, this is the place to go. WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!?

Dam! that's all that goes through my mind after looking at my tattoo. I meet "Image" about year ago maybe longer and his art work brought us together and made our bond stronger between artist and client. Now as present day goes by I'm still getting tattoo's with "Image" and always going home happy with the art and friend.

I recently had a tattoo done in his shop and it was the best tattoo i have ever received. I told him the idea for a tattoo i had in my mind and he was able to bring it to reality. He actually exceeded my expectations with the tattoo. If you want a tattoo and cannot decide where to go, go to tattoo image because you would not have to go anywhere else. Good prices and an even greater talent can be found there.
