This is where you can find out about my history with, and my ideas for the future in relation to tattooingLearn more…
Even with tattooing as my main gig, I have always felt like more of an illustrator than an artist. Bringing a clients ideas to fruition rather than my own emotional statements. These days I work primarily in digital but I have always had the motto “Anything from skin to steel” and that will always continue. Whatever the challenge, I aim to deliver in a Clean and professional way. Everything is for sale and commissions are always welcome, Inquire within!View Portfolio…
I love to chat about tattoo ideas and art projects just about any time. Even if it is early in the process and you are not yet ready to make a decision, a professional perspective may help you gain insight into trends, ideas, lighting and all sorts of other things that you may not necessarily think of. You can drop me a line or if you can catch me at the shop, I’ll chat your ear off, even if I don’t feel the project is a good fit for me.

Come to me at any stage in the creative process for a first or second honest opinion. I love challenges and I like to sit with my clients and distill their ideas down to a few core thoughts, emotions or memories to really develop something just right for them. I like to discuss symbolism and help them to understand their options, generally a limb at a time.
I’ve been doing this a few years on now and have always felt that being able to tackle any task would help my range as an artist. Lately, I have been trying to develop my own style. I have been using those years of experience to lean on what I find to be stronger design elements and working on those pieces where I have the greatest creative freedom. I do still value a range of subjects in my portfolio almost as much as I value being able to do something different every day. Lets see what we can make together!
Whether we are designing an epic sleeve or a commissioned painting for the room. I try to design with the end in mind. Whatever the style and whatever the subject matter, I want your piece to be my best work and for it to stand the test of time.
I have been making some changes to my working process and will currently only be taking on work which speaks to me the loudest and challenges me the most. I have ideas that I would like to try and promote, and am interested in defining my style a little better these days. Taking on a slightly lighter load will help with my ability to focus on the work that I feel the strongest about. Portriature of all types, Real-school (traditional style with realistically drawn elements) and Bio-organic stuff straight to the front of the line. All projects are considered based on the project and the creativity aspects I am allowed, not the person. If I do not feel the fit is right for this project, or if I cannot meet your time or budget constraints, please try me again on the next!
