I moved to Florida when I was around 15 years old. Left to my own devices, and more than a little anti-social, I developed much of my artistic style getting yelled at by teachers as I scribbled on the back of tests, and the margins of notebook paper.
It was after a short stint in the military, and a few mundane jobs that I stumbled upon the opportunity of a lifetime, getting to apprentice as a tattoo artist. While so many other artists get doomed to a life of only creating when time allows, I was given the chance to create comissioned works on a daily basis. It was this environment of high pressure, fast-paced creating that I honed my craft.
Having seen some of the more exciting artwork being done in the field, I made it my goal to incoporate the driving desires behind my other artwork into the medium of tattoo. To this end, I utilize my abilities in digital/3-D artwork, photography, and drawing to prep pieces of work to be placed in skin. I then apply the painting techinques that I have learned, to transform the process from tracing artwork on skin, to a more synergistic creative process. The experience is deeply satisfying, and I can't imagine myself doing anything else.
If you are seeking to get any tattoo work done by me, or commision me for any other artwork, feel free to contact me to arrange this.
