Art has been a lifelong pursuit for me, mom still holds on to those toddler age sketches. Childhood was filled with art contest ribbons rather than sports trophies. Graduated from High School with honors in art. Studied Graphic Design at the Art Institute of Dallas & worked in that field for nearly a decade until Tattooing found me through an old friend. He offered to teach me one day out of the blue. I started my apprenticeship a few days later and the rest is history. I like to say it’s the best snap decision I’ve ever made; I love what I do! 

I specialize in Sacred Geometry, Ornamental & Dotwork, though I enjoy the challenges found in all styles of tattooing.
