Tell us about your style of work.
My personal style is more neo-traditional and Asian, but I am very versatile and can match any style or design requested.
How did you get into tattooing?
I have been into art my entire life, but it wasn't until high school that I became fascinated by how you can permanently design your entire body to be more unique than everybody else. I was loved the idea that there would be people out there with my art on them for the reset of their lives! So one day, I got me a couple of machines and started practicing on myself, then quickly gained the trust of my clients. The rest is history.
What inspires you as an artist?
Honestly, anything art related will do it -- especially seeing other tattoo artists' work will always motivate me to get better.
What kind of tattoos do you look forward to doing?
Any designs that really push my capabilities as a tattoo artist!
Is there a tattoo you haven't done yet that you are dying to do?
A phoenix back piece.
