E.A.R.T.H. Lab AssistanceRam Gonzalez was raised in Inglewood alongside two younger brothers and an older sister in a one-bedroom apartment. Tattoo culture was prominent and he began to get involved as a teenager. Artwork on peoples' skin was more riveting than the fine art hanging on the museum walls. Tattooing was a stepping-stone into the art world and it is still the source from which he draws inspiration as he explores his culture through ink and pain and as a physical connection to the past. The action of adding pigment to ones skin has the ability to change how the wearer is perceived and even how they see themselves.
