I’ve been intrigued by art my whole life & I was very young when I realized it was my passion. Ever since I was a little kid, I always had a pencil & paper in hand. I’d mostly draw my action figures or toys & kept trying to challenge myself with drawing different objects as I got older, but I was always drawing or playing video games. One day my sister told me I could be an apprentice at her tattoo shop back in 2007 & I was an apprentice for a year. After a year of extremely hard work & dedication to the art, I was officially a tattoo artist by 2008. My first tattoo was so nerve racking but the feeling I had while I was tattooing was nothing short of adrenaline. After that first tattoo, I knew that this was it – being a tattoo artist is what I want to do with my life & I thank my sister & family for supporting my decision to pursue this dream. I have great clientele & I’m very appreciative of new comers who were referred to me by my clients, or even those who found me by social media, & humbled to know how happy each tattoo makes them. Thank you to everyone who has trusted me & allowed me to share my thoughts & ideas with them not only on paper, but on their skin as well. You are all part of the reason my family & I have a roof over our heads & food on our plates. So again, thank you for giving me the chance to meet all of you wonderful people & thank you for continuing to come back.
