I come from a small town in Ohio, but I have been here in Arizona for nearly 20 years. My interest in tattooing began when I received my first tattoo at the age of 17. My first opportunity to work in a shop didn’t come until around 2011. Ever since I have taken a strong interest in the American Traditional style of tattooing. I love doing tattoos with bold lines and color, this gives a tattoo a lot of strength. I also enjoy painting tattoo flash just as much as tattooing. The past few years of tattooing and painting have led me to meet and collaborate with other tattooers that I have looked up to since I first began my career. As stressful as this field of work can be, I could not imagine doing anything else.
