This makes him excellent at ethnographic inspired tattooing, commonly referred to as tribal tattooing, drawing influence from Samoan tattoo, Marquesan tattoo, and Maori tattoo artwork.

He has previously worked at True Tattoo in Los Angeles, Avalon II in San Diego, Saints and Sinners in Dallas, Electric Ladyland in New Orleans, Metal Machine in Cape Town, and is a regular guest at Royal Tattoo in Helsingor, Denmark.
