Blessed Saints Tattoos with Anthony Maya: Artist Story Untold

Art became my way of escaping reality… Anthony Maya

Can you look at a painting and see what the artist saw? To take a tattoo and feel what peace means to someone. Maybe have a word like “Blessed” written in penmanship that lets you see the light. Can you just picture an individual that can take a painting idea and make it come to life. An individual that can tell a story through the motion of his hands and mind. Anthony Maya is that individual.

From a very young age, Anthony Maya was gifted with the ability to take pretty much any utensil and make a masterpiece. “I would watch my older brother Andrew Maya and I would try and duplicate his artwork,” said Anthony. From pen, pencil, paint, chalk and every Charcoal. He learned to master portraits, penmanship and his own artistic mind.

It wouldn’t take long for Anthony to find a tattoo machine in his hand. “I never thought of being a tattoo artist. I wanted to be a graphic designer,” Anthony replies. Now at Blessed Saints Tattoo Shop with owner Javier Herrera and fellow tattoo artists, some of Arizona’s most known and accomplished artists.

“Art became my way of escaping reality,” said Anthony. He took his outlet and became one of Arizona’s finest tattoo artists. Already known statewide with portraits of Nipsey Hussle and tattooing former NFL players, Cameron Colvin and Arthur Maulet. Anthony is now ready to take his talent nationwide.
