How long have been tattooing professionally?
Around 5 years.
What inspired you into the art of tattooing?
For me, I saw it as just another art form to try, and it is. The same as how every artist paints and sketches their own way and style, I was excited to try it out and see what I could come up with.
Tell us about your preferred style of work.
I enjoy doing all sorts of styles, but my favorite has to be black and grey realism.
What other styles are you known for?
Another style I'm very comfortable doing is any type of traditional Japanese. It's one of the styles of tattooing I freehand a lot.
What inspires you as an artist?
What inspires me most is knowing I can always do better and improve.
Why should someone pick you for their next tattoo/to be their artist?
Because I can honestly say that no matter the duration of the tattoo, me and my clients always have a badass time. No one said it has to be dull while you're getting your badass tattoo.
Anything else you'd like for prospective clients to know about you?
I like pina coladas. And also, from time to time, getting caught in the rain.
