TOP FIVE THINGS I LOVE TO TATTOO
(this is always a hard list to compile because I love my job)
I have been tattooing since 2010 and absolutely love tattooing and the art around it. Before tattooing, I worked many jobs from record stores and roofing to grave-digging and ended up loving turning people into coloring books. I spent my formative tattoo years in Massachusetts working in a great shop, learning how to work with clients and how to build a great tattoo based on what the client wants and what will work in tattooing.
I was originally drawn to tattooing from the Japanese style, to the flow and composition involved in the tattoos; there was something very appealing to me. I have also been fortunate enough to make friends in Japan and to be able to travel there, and to study with Japanese tattooers.
I love tattooing anything from the “traditional trinity” (or I should say my holy trifecta) of traditional tattoos: traditional western (read as sailor tattoos); Japanese tattoos; and the L.A. Chicano black and grey style. These are some of my favorite designs and to me just have amazing power and let’s face it, look bad ass.
I love working with clients and building something we both can be proud of for years to come. Whether it’s a small personal tattoo or a bigger piece, we can work together to find and design the tattoo to suit you and will hold well into the future. Tattooing has given me the chance to travel the world, meet amazing people, and do what I love.
