Serpent & the Rainbow Tattoo

Next month


I started tattooing in Hot Springs, AR in 1999. I moved to Texas in 2001 to work until 2010 when I left to work at Hot Stuff Tattoo in Asheville, NC. Now I’m partners with 3 amazing artist at Serpent & the Rainbow Tattoo in Asheville as well. I do a little bit of everything but am mostly known for my neo-traditional and Japanese work. I also do poly inspired tribal and western traditional.



Old School (Traditional)
Japanese (Irezumi)
