Drawing and painting for the majority of my life lead me to a position as a Tattoo Artist. I've always enjoyed art, but it wasn't until my good friend Mike introduced a tattoo machine to me, that I took tattooing into consideration. Intrigued from the start I knew right away I had found something I was genuinely interested in. I began my search for an apprenticeship but had no luck. Determined, I absorbed any and all information I could get my hands on... After a year I practically tripped on the opportunity to work in a shop. Never receiving a traditional apprenticeship presented many challenges. I was reliant on the artists that surrounded me and my obsession with the craft, asking any and all questions I could think up, to learn and grow as an Artist. In time I developed a better understanding for the art of tattooing, and my passion continues to grow as an Artist.
