Last week I wrote about the tattoo artist from El Paso who was featured in a Channel 5 YouTube video. Well we now know a little more about who that man was & we found the shop he works at.

If you haven't seen the video, here's a refresher: Channel 5 with Andrew Callaghan posted a video about the "SatanCon" that was held in Scottsdale, AZ in February. And one person they interviewed was from El Paso; you can find at the 13:30 mark in the video.

After that video came out, people on Instagram were searching for this guy & wanted to know who he was. Well I did manage to find him & I have a brief conversation with him.

It turns out the guy's name is Daniel Ortiz, but he goes by "Bureka". He recently moved to El Paso & currently owns the Breaking Point Tattoo & Body Mod shop in town, 3996 Doniphan Dr, Suite C. (So now you know where to go if you want to "hit him up...El Paso, TX").

But that's not all... I found out he's a break dancer. So good in fact, he told me once appeared on the Conan O'Brien show for a break dancing contest back in 2020.

(these are all screenshots taken from some of his breakdancing videos)

He used to teach dancing long ago but his main focus now is the work he does at his shop.

Some people HAVE recognized him from the video, so if you want to hit him for any tattoo or piercing work, now you know where he works.
