Obed Comparan started tattooing in 2007, he started his apprenticeship at Ink Pagoda in Fontana California learning under Rudy Martinez. After completing his apprenticeship, he worked at Ink Pagoda for a three years, then worked at a couple other shops learning techniques along the way. As an artist he is always learning and growing in his craft. Obed loves color realism, black and grey realism with a dark contrast, also a bit of everything else, including script, traditional, neo-traditional, religious art, portraits, japanese art and custom tattoos.

Now here at Six Feet Under he is grateful and honored to have the opportunity to work along side Corey Miller and the awesome crew here at Six Feet Under.
