I have always enjoyed making art from a young age. I grew up in So Cal and started my apprenticship at the local shop at age 17 but had to get a job to help the family out and cut my apprenticship short of just a year. After things cleared I was able to go back to tattooing in 2004 and have been professionally tattooing from then on. My favorite style varies from many different influences of artists. I believe that every style has something to offer to the modern tattoo artist so I try not to limit myself to one specific "brand". Tattooing to me isn't just what I do, it defines me as the person I am today. I am eager to learn more in every piece that I do and I appriciate what my clients challenge me with daily and look forward to many more years exploring the art of tattooing.
