I’ve been professionally tattooing for thirteen years and I believe tattooing has become just as much of a commitment and purpose to me as raising my children. I have been drawing with a pencil in my hand since I was a very small child. My style of tattooing is a blended mix of black and grey realism, Japanese traditional and large work that combines fit and flow as well as composition and contrast. I have spent years tattooing throughout the bay area of California including San Francisco and Sacramento. Six years ago my five children, my wife and I moved to Southern Oregon. Here we have fallen in love with one another and the beauty of nature again. Having the opportunity to tattoo in one if the most alive and organic studios I’ve been to pushes me to grow and strive daily and to be a better-rounded artist from tattoo to canvas.
