Hi, my name is William Aguilar Sr. better known as "Rude” or “RudeTattoos”. I am the Owner of ‘RudeTattoos Inkwell‘ in Columbia, SC. I have proudly served the Midlands and surrounding areas since March of 2014. I am a father of 3 beautiful children and a devoted husband, but things weren’t always about art. Behind the artist I am TODAY, there’s a long dark history from Gang-Member to Family man. The Art of Tattooing has saved my life. Growing up I had a talent for creating anything my young mind could think of but by unfortunate circumstances my immediate environment lead me to a life of destruction, illegal activities, and ultimately incarceration. During my time, I spent countless hours and days mastering my craft, finding the peace and love I so much desired to receive from the streets. Tattooing has changed my life for the better. Being able to bring each and every clients’ ideas to life motivates me to give my all to each and every tattoo. Some being as special as memorials for passed loved ones, simple little flash bangers, to hourly sessions for huge pieces. The experiences I provide to my clients will always be one to remember. Taking all clients young and old, first timers and ink junkies. Being able to create art on the body is a skill my heart rejoices for. Every tattoo I put out comes from within me, giving my BEST each and every time. My journey is far from over. This is only the beginning!
I’m a well-rounded Tattoo Artist capable of doing Black & Grey, Photo Realism, Custom, Color and Cover Ups. I mostly enjoy any and all Black & Grey Tattoos. Dedicating myself strictly to, but not limited, Black & Grey style tattoos.
My goal as a Professinal Tattoo Artist is to provide the best experience at the most comfortable price possible. Understanding most tattoos have significant meaning to my clients and respecting their ideas. I’m faced with First Timers and I welcome them to the best most comforting experience possible, moving quickly, being as gentle as possible, and providing the best quality of work.
