Hiram Casas (born on October 14, 1989) is a 32 years old Cuban tattoo artist based in Las Vegas. He is the co-owner of Basilica Tattoo and has more than 10 years of experience in this field. Most people recognize him because he was one of the participants of “Ink Master: Turf War,” a competition show where skilled tattooists compete with each other to win grand prize money.
In 2022, the 14th season of “Ink Master” aired on Paramount+ on September 7. It catapulted Casas into popularity because, this time, he got to compete with artists like Katie McGowan, Holli Marie, Gian Karle, and others. This time the prize money was $250,000, and the competition was not easy for any of the participants.
Is Hiram Casas American?
No, Hiram Casas (age 24) is not American; he was born on October 14, 1998, in Havana, Cuba. We learned that his mother’s name is Lazara Faife and that he has a total of 7 siblings; 4 brothers and 3 sisters.
In an interview with Skin Artists, Hiram revealed that he has been good at drawing since childhood. He was 5 when his parents recognized his talent and made him join an art school. In 2005 the Cuban guy joined the prestigious St Alejandro Fine Arts Academy, where he learned painting, sculpting, and also art history.
Struggle in Cuba
Sources revealed that as a budding tattoo artist, Cas struggled greatly in his learning days. There is no licensing system for tattooists in Cuba, so there are no tattoo shops where beginners can apply for apprenticeships.
All Hiram had was YouTube to learn this extremely tough art. He used to watch YT videos all day and watched shows like Miami Ink to learn to tattoo; in short, we can say that Casas is a self-taught artist.
Growth in Career
As Hiram grew older, he shifted to America. In 2015 he joined LV-based Club Tattoo and worked there until the following year. In 2016 he co-founded Basilica Tattoo and since has been running his business successfully.
When Casas was selected to be a part of “Ink Master,” he competed against 20 contestants and performed well for the first 12 episodes; unluckily, in the thirteenth episode, Casas’ journey at “Ink Master” ended, and he finished with the 6th place. Although he could not win the competition, but he gained a huge fan following, and his career has been growing since.
Who is Hiram Casas’ Wife?
Hiram is married to a lovely lady named Elsa Casas. The tattoo artist’s wife is shy and does not often appear on Instagram but maintains social media handles. According to sources, Elsa is also Hispanic and has Cuban roots. There is no information about how they both met, but there are rumors that they met through a mutual friend. Currently, they live with their cute little son in las Vegas.
