How Long Have You Been Tattooing?

9 Years

What/Who Inspires Your Art?

My inspiration comes from the Love of my girlfriend and kids, my family, my fellow artists, Nature and the world. Everything is inspirational. The sadness of this planet, the happiness it hides. Anger and Love between people. Tattoos are a window into the soul. Tattoos help people express themselves; they help people be true to themselves. That's why I tattoo.

What Are Your Favorite Tattoos to Create?

I love drawing Neo Traditional style tattoos although Japanese is my favorite. I also want to get more into illustrative and anime!

Describe Your Ideal Client?

An ideal client knows what they want but will give me creative freedom, respects my pricing, pays the deposit, shows up at least on time (I don't like early-birds or tardiness, just be on time), can have good convo (doesn't have to be intellectual), and sits as still as possible with minimal complaints.

What's The Best Way For Someone to Contact You to Schedule a Tattoo?
