I have been tattooing since 2002. Did a traditional 2 year apprenticeship(I worked for virtually no pay until I learned how to do tattoos that people were willing to pay for) under Ian Hudgins. I do just about every style of tattoo except for water color and those tiny tiny tattoos that are the craze right now. Not knocking them I just don't have experience with doing that style, and if I'm going to do something it's gotta be done right. Favorite style has got to be large scale neo traditional, especially Aisian themed pieces. I can draw my ass off so any piece I get to showcase that will get my attention. I have been doing black and grey realism for about 4 years of my career and have gotten quite competent in it. Starting to try my hand at color realism and so far so good but I wouldn't call myself an expert it that realm, yet... I take my craft very seriously and prefer to tattoo on clients who really care about what goes on their bodies . I will pass on any tattoo my client don't see eye to eye on . I of course want my clients input when creating a design for them but I will not do a tattoo that I don't think will look good even if my client is insistent on it period. That rarely happens though,I just wanted to point out that I will not just slap a tattoo on you just to make a quick buck. I will not be micro managed during any of the tattoo process and 99% of the time we (Tattooer's)know best. I have seen all to often a tattoo that didn't turn out as good as the client expected mostly because the Tattooer let the client have a pi much control of the design process. I have designed thousands of tattoos where as most clients have designed, well no where near as many. That being said friendly guy and I enjoy working with people but I'm very direct, you will know exactly where I am at and how I feel about a tattoo design or concept right then and there. If I'm not the artist for you, I'll definitely let you know and chances are I can point you in the direction of someone who would be better suited to do your piece. All that really matters to me is that people out there are getting quality tattoos. Lemme know if you are in need of a tattoo or even some guidance about a possible tattoo I try and respond to everyone who takes the time to write me a message. Hope to one day work with you.
