Brandon “Buddha” Heredia graduated his apprenticeship in Reno, NV in 2018. The majority of his time tattooing in Reno was spent at the historic Body Graphics Tattoo, owned by Picture Machine founder Guy Martinyuk’s grandson.
Brandon decided to take his career to the next level. Moving down to the Bay Area in 2020 to join Pastime Tattoo, where he already has been friends with everyone for well over a decade through the hardcore scene.
Style-wise, Brandon’s tattoos and flash are as traditional as they come. Bold lines, clean whip shading, solid color, and timeless classic tattoo imagery that has stood the test of time.
When he is not working, you may catch Brandon at local hardcore shows, either attending or playing guitar, collecting Power Ranger memorabilia, beating his friends in Yu-Gi-Oh! duels, or hanging out with his girlfriend and dog.
