With a nickname like "The Tattooed Terror" you wouldn't guess that Johnny Cisneros was actually an affable, almost soft-spoken, guy. Cisneros sat down with SullenTV to discuss his tattoo collection and in the video the professional MMA fighter who is known for delivering hellacious beatdowns in the ring has a sensitive side and a keen eye for art.
Cisneros has been collecting tattoos since the age of 16, even though at the time he had no idea that his collection would grow to the extent that it has. One theme that has remained constant through his collecting is the meaning behind the ink—all of his tattoos combine to tell the story of his life and his heritage.
A lot of his work has been done by Big Gus, who also happens to be his brother, so we're guessing that means it isn't too hard to get fit in for a session. Then again, when we think of the horrible things our siblings have done to us, Cisneros is showing a hell of a lot of trust. Cisneros tends to get the majority of his work done by friends or at least people who have been recommended by some of his friends, knowing the artists gives him a deeper connection with his art.
