His tattooing career began with a period of travel through Australia, Malaysia, Thailand, and New Zealand, where he was inspired by the South Pacific tattoo styles, namely Maori, Polynesian, and Samoan. These styles are commonly referred to as "Tribal".

Christensen states that his fascination with clean lines, stark contrasts, and the ability to play with the existing forms of the body, are his greatest inspiration. He also includes blackwork, dotwork, mandala, and henna-inspired elements in his tattoos.

Most of Christensen's work solely uses black ink, but he has also experimented with including red ink in his designs and breaking across style barriers.
