Meet The Team


Ray Arce

@tatted_taco |


Our Co-Owner and Color artist Ray specializes in Mandala Dotwork, Neo-Traditional and Black & Grey realism. His extensive training throughout the years has brought him much knowledge in the Japanese art form which he bases most of his art from. Ray will give you the custom tattoo of your dreams by looking up to artists like Ed Hardy, Leonardo, and Chris Garver. 


As a former Army Scout, I am proud to give my fellow veterans and active-duty members a discount.


Jimmy Tomes


Jimmy Tomes born in 1980 in Detroit, MI. He started his tattooing career with an apprenticeship in 1995 at his family-run Tattoo shop called Finest Touch Tattoos.  Jimmy and his wife moved to Florida in 2007 where he worked for the last 12 years in a Deerfield shop. His passion is doing Black and Grey mostly but he does have a great eye for color and Japanese tattoos as well.


Manny Rios


Originally from Venezuela, Manny moved to Sunny South Florida in 2001. Since he was in high school he always had a love for drawing and art but never knew how to get started in this industry. Luckily, a year ago an apprenticeship here at Ink Boss opened up and he decided to take that opportunity to explore the possibilities that could come from working under the artists here. Eager to put his art on skin, he looks up to artists such as Ray Arce (@Tatted_Taco, and Jose (@canti__) due to their heavy neo-traditional influence and his love for their work. 

In his spare time, you can find Manny raising his Daughter or playing basketball and video games.

Darrin WolfE


A Florida native, Darrin began piercing in 2019.  Since that time, Darrin has pierced thousands of clients.  His favorite piercings are one’s that are unique, such as dermals, bridges, and industrials.  But what he likes best about being a piercer is having happy clients. When he is not piercing, Darrin can be found enjoying his boat or riding his motorcycle along the Avenue.
