What year did you start tattooing: 2001
Tell us about the style of your work: Early in my career I was influenced by new skool tattoos. Three years ago my style changed to super-traditional or as I call it “swarmditional”. When I am not tattooing I am constantly working on new designs and preserving the art of hand painting “tattoo flash”. Currently I have painted 34 sheets with 8 more to complete my whole wall in my tattoo station “the wall of doom”. I aspire to do nice, clean, crisp tattoos that are readable to withstand a lifetime. I am also a fan of tribal and other challenging blackwork tattoos.
