I've traveled many places and worked alongside many artists throughout my career. The one constant that always has stayed with me is growth. Tattooing has brought more value in the form of having a drive to succeed and to grow artistically than anything I have done before it, and the one absolute I will always carry with me is that unique connection to people, their lives, their footprint, and their stories.This is the heart of why I chose tattooing as my lifelong career. More than anything, it has always been my desire to give my clients more than just a tattoo they're happy with, but a great experience while they're getting it and my clients often become my friends. I love what I do, every day, and am honored to hold that place for my clients as their chosen artist.
