Jose Manuel Sosa
Evolved Body Art
Sosa is from Merida, Venezuela where he started his career in 2001. While in Venezuela, he became a founding member of the first piercing studio in Merida from 2001-2007.
In 2007, Sosa decided to open his own studio. He called it “Siddhartha Tattoo and Body Piercing”. By 2009, due to popular demand, he had doubled the size of his business where he worked happily until he sold his business in order to travel to Mexico.
While in Mexico, Sosa worked two of the top piercing studios in Mexico City – “Estudio 184” and “Tercer Ojo Crew”.
He is proud to say that he is the first Venezuelan member to ever join the Latinoamerica Body Piercers (LBP) and the Association of Professional Piercers (APP). He is currently the social media manager for the LBP.
Sosa regularly travels to attend piercing seminars and conferences.
He enjoys designing one-of-a-kind 14k and 18k gold custom body jewelry, particularly from reclaimed and vintage traditional jewelry.
