Why did you choose to tattoo for a living?

Growing up my dad was an artist and I took a big interest in art from a young age. As I grew older I kind of fell out of love with art. It wasn’t until my older brother started tattooing when I once again fell in love with art. I asked for an apprenticeship where he was working and 5 years later here I am! It’s something that is a part of me I will never lose again.

Describe your art in one word?

VERSATILE! I enjoy being an artist that isn’t a “one trick pony”. While I do lean to one specific style , I don’t like to limit myself and I consider myself a great tattoo artist in multiple styles.

What or who inspires you and why?

Tattooing as a whole inspires me! Tattoo artists are an entirely different breed of people and I’m proud to be part of an industry that thrives off of creative minds. I think it’s impossible to not be inspired by the tattoos that are being put out today.

What is your favorite tattoo style?

Definitely Neo-Traditional/Traditional style tattooing. I LOVE working with bold bright colors and just the way you can make the image flow, especially with my Neo-Traditional pieces.

What’s your favorite tattoo on your body and why?

I do not cherish my tattoos as much as I do the experience I have when getting them. All of my tattoos were done by my friends who are also tattoo artists which makes getting the tattoo so much more fun. Nothing like getting zapped by the guy you just tattooed, no such thing as mercy.

What’s your favorite hobby?

Honestly tarantulas! I’m a huge arachnophile and so far I have a collection of 20 spiders. My collection will hopefully grow significantly over the coming years. There are so many different species and they all have distinct characteristics that separates one from another. To me they are amazing creatures!
