How did you get into tattooing: As a young skateboarding teenager the only way to visit my brother was by going to Tattoo conventions he was working at.. id travel from my home town in San Diego to whichever venue he was working, watching mesmerized for hours on end at the amazing acid like art work my brother was producing..then hop on my board and find spots to skate hahaha.. I had no idea how big of an impact and how fortunate i was to be meeting the pioneers of the tattooing industry.... from 15 years old i was introduced to people like Guy Aitchison [when guilty and innocent was still open where my brother had worked].. Paul Booth who was the nicest down to earth person! Kim Saigh[who also worked at guilty] Hannah Aitchison and James Kern who saw me get my first tattoo that was a 7 hour session at 16 years old..So my introduction to tattooing was from the standpoint of actual tattoo artists not tattooists which i feel i am very fortunate to have known at such an early age that fine art can be tattoos, and they aren't for bikers or sailors any more...
