I started my apprenticeship in CA in 2004. I learned in tradition to the tattooing code, I learned about shop etiquette, customer relations, tattoo drawing and acetate stencils, needle jigging and tattoo machine building. I continued my studying going from shop to shop. It's a lifetime process, to learn from many different artists; what to do and what "not" to do. Award winning and professionally gifted. I am experienced in BIO-mechanical, organic, geometric, and traditional tattoos, new school and old; free hand tribal and free hand coverups; portraits, black and grey or color; sleeves, leg and arm; back pieces and more.
