How did you get into tattooing: I started tattooing myself. It was short lived and I stopped doing it that way until I found a shop that would take me on as an apprentice. With help from friends in the industry, I found that foot in the door.
What inspires you to be an artist: I like to observe the most twisted and badass. Strange surreal artwork has always fascinated me, but I try to draw as much inspiration from within as possible. I would say the ordinary made unusual will always draw my attention.
