Ink Master's Chris Nuñez on His New Miami Shop, Tatu Baby, and Corporate America

Chris Nuñez might be Miami's most recognizable ink ambassador. In addition to turns on reality TV blowouts Miami Ink and Ink Master, the tattoo artist recently opened his own surprisingly low-key spot, Handcrafted Miami (3438 N Miami Ave., Miami).

In addition to reppin' the 305's tattoo scene before a national audience, Nunez is looking to showcase tattooing as the art form it really is. His new labor of love is an art gallery and tattoo parlor, and according to Nunez, such a pairing has been a long time coming.

We caught up with Nuñez at his new Midtown haunt and talked corporate pillaging, stress relief, and fellow Miamian and Ink Master star, Tatu Baby.
