Before piercing, Compadrito Anibal had a business in Peru and studied merchandising and retail in Chile. He decided to dedicate himself to the professional world of Body Piercing in 2003 and studied under Giancarlo Ferrari "Chango" in Peru. He has been influenced byt the work of great piercing artists such as Rata from Argentina and Javier Fingazz from Chile.
Anibal has travelled across South America both learning and teaching others through workshops in Brazil, Argentina, Bolivia, Paraguay, and Peru. He has done over 18,000 piercings and mostly works by free hand, the method preferred by his mentor, Chango.
Anibal now lives on the beach, splitting his time between surfing and piercing in the Studio, Natutal Mystic, in Matinhos. He also travels teaching others the art of Body Piercing with his colleagues, Ronaldo Sampaio "Snoopy" and Thiago de Oliveira "Thiaguinho Piercer".
