About ME:

Hello! My Name is Cesar "CZER" Valverde I am a Resident Artist at Blue Jay Tattoo. I love all types of music but I gravitate towards Hip Hop, Rock (All Types), Reggae, Blues, Jazz and Classical. When I'm not tattooing or working I like to spend time with my family and create art in various mediums.

I moved to Rio Rancho, NM in 2007 in search of somewhere to settle, find a permanent home and pursue a career in tattooing and art. I lived in Tucson, AZ for 7 years prior to moving to Rio Rancho. I grew up most of my life in El Paso, TX which to this day I consider my hometown.

I got my start in professional tattooing in a very small shop in August of 2007 which due to bad ownership and getting all my equipment stolen, that shop closed 6 months shortly after I joined on. Shortly after that, two of the other artists I worked with in that shop opened up Blue Jay Tattoo in March of 2008. A few months later and after a few series of unforeseen events, me and another artist named Grey became business partners and maintained that status until about October of 2014 when he chose a different career path and end our partnership at which point I "proudly" took full ownership of Blue Jay Tattoo. I solely owned and operated Blue Jay Tattoo from late 2014 until the end of 2016 where my co-worker Frankie Andrade Maestas took over and became new owner since. 

I believe in the "Golden Rule". To do unto others as you would have done unto you. I've had my share of ups and downs like most people and I'm grateful that I've learned and grown through the years. I'm grateful to all my clients past, present and future alike for your business and continued support. I'm very fortunate to be able to do what I love for a living everyday.

I really enjoy just about everything. I don't treat the small wrist tattoo any different than the full back piece. I put 110% into every tattoo that I get a request for. I do it with the best quality my experience can produce and I do my best to be fair and reasonable with my pricing for  my quality of work.

Thank you for taking a minute to read and learn a little about me. Please take a minute to browse my portfolio pictures below. If you don't see something your looking to get tattooed, it doesn't mean I haven't tattooed it or won't tattoo it. Below are just some of my personal favorite things to tattoo. When I'm asked "What's your specialty" the answer is "ALL SCHOOL" tattoos are my specialty . . . . . . .basically anything I'm willing to take on. TATTOOING IS MY SPECIALTY!
