When did you start tattooing?
May of 2000
What do you love about tattooing?
I love the freedom, expression, autonomy and relationships that are built between clients and fellow artists.
Describe your current style of tattoo
I really enjoy working in a realistic style with a loose painterly look. Ive always loved doing all things dark and based in horror, animals are fun especially the furry kind and portraits mostly of the pop culture variety.
What is your favorite flavor of ice cream and why?
Mint Chocolate Chip, no contest. Creamy sweet refreshing minty goodness with bites of dark chocolate mixed in… what’s not to love?
Who are your biggest influences in life/art?
My wife, Ronnie James Did, Don Martin, Alphonse Mucha, George Carlin, Guillermo Del Toro, HR Gieger, Matt Clemmer, HIP, Joshua Carlton, Tony Lommi, Jim Henson, Benjamin Frankling Hawkeye Pierce.
If you were a superhero what would your name/superpower be?
