Salvador Golez Rosca, professionally known by his artist name Butch Rosca was born on September 14,1980. He is a professional tattoo artist, specializing in Oriental Custom Bodysuits.

Starting at a very young age, Rosca experimented with pens, charcoals and paint brushes. In 1993 he left his hometown Bacolod City and moved to the capital city of The Philippines; Manila. During his high school days he painted portraits and sold them to support himself through high school.

In 2001 Rosca studied Multimedia Arts and Painting at De La Salle University College of Saint Benilde. During this period he saw a future in Henna Tattoos and was able to place a booth at the Manila Bay Walk. Shortly after Rosca got noticed and lived a very colorful life. He graduated from college and handled over 15 Henna Tattoo Artists.

Around 2006 the Manila Bay Walk got shot down for some political reasons. This is where Rosca showed interest in permanent tattooing and first picked up a tattoo machine. Close friends and neighbours offered him their skins to practice his art on. Rosca has honed his skills dramatically since.

Starting 2009 Rosca competed and won over 20 awards at local and international tattoo conventions. In 2010 he organized his own very successful tattoo convention: "TATUMOTO". From here on he attended at more local tattoo conventions as a judge.

In 2014 Rosca reopened his shop, after deciding to close his previous shop (Black Samurai) due to tragic experiences with his business partners in 2012. His shop is now relocated in Las PiƱas City based in The Philippines. Since the reopening of his shop: SLASHED TATTOO STUDIO or better known as BUTCH ROSCA TATTOO STUDIO he has reached a turning point in his life. People from East to West visit The Philippines to get a priceless piece of art work done. They all share the same heart for his art.
