About

My interests in tattooing stemmed from the process of getting tattooed myself. I've been drawing for as much of my life as I can remember, and probably longer. Fine art has always been a passion of mine, as well as the "strange and unusual." I always knew that regardless of the career path I would take in life, it had to be art-related in some way. Throughout college, I learned and applied many new techniques to enhance my skills, and I graduated with an Associate's Degree in Fine Art. I have also received several awards for my work in drawing and painting, and have been showcased in a number of fine art exhibitions. I entered the tattoo industry as an apprentice in 2016 and have been tattooing since 2017, and I truly appreciate the many ways in which I am able to utilize my knowledge in design and art theory in my work.

 

I enjoy meeting new people and collaborating with them to bring their ideas to life.

Specialties

I work in a wide range of styles from realism to American traditional (and just about anything in between) to tailor my designs to best suit the vision and goals of my clients. I really enjoy blending elements of representational realism with various illustrative styles and abstract pieces.

Exploring unique imagery is what I live for! Working in full color is super fun for me, but I also enjoy some soft black and grays here and there. As far as subject matter goes, just about anything organic is what I'm all about - plant life, insects, animals, the human figure, and then some. Peep my portfolio for inspiration on some of my styles to incorporate into your next tattoo with me
