PRO
I've been holding a pencil since my parents figured out it would keep me quiet.. Always loved drawing, not a huge fan of crayons and color. (ironic, now isn't it? ) Drawing my inspirations from comics, movies, cartoons and video games has definitely informed and influenced my style as a tattooer. Those same subjects, particularly in the sci-fi, horror and fantasy realms continue to be my favored subject matter for viewing, and tattooing. I started in a street shop called Elm City in East Haven, Ct. Since then, I've tried to keep a diverse skill set, and dabble in most styles (except color portraiture) . Favorite things to tattoo - color newschool, creepy/creatures (Bakercreatures), animals, skulls and biomech... but I'm not opposed to other things, and have been known to do a flower or two. In my 10 years of tattooing I've learned so much from so many talented artists that I now call friends - but I'm always striving for more. Always trying to surpass the mentors, and meet new ones! I've recently returned to Connecticut, at Hope Gallery, so come see me there!
