I got my first tattoo in the summer of 1990. It was a home tattoo, what they call a “stick and poke,” done by a guy named Charlie in his trailer at his kitchen table. (I’m not condoning home tattooing but we all start somewhere.) Sixteenth music notes with flames on my left hand. Fast forward to 2021 and I have been tattooing for 21 years now.
Most of the tattoos I do are black and grey semi-realistic to realistic. I enjoy those types of tattoos because they’re like drawing with a pencil, and that’s the reason why I draw. But I also enjoy bold color, traditional, Asian, watercolor, fine lines, and more. I prefer a style of no style and try not to limit myself or my clientele.
When I’m not at the shop I enjoy spending time with my wife, Ashley, and our 5 kids.
