Before someone gets a tattoo what advice do you give them?: Make sure you have a pretty good idea of what you want, where you want it, and a firm budget to work with. never get tattooed on a couch.
How did you get into tattooing: I used to sit and watch my dad paint and draw a lot, wishing I could create the same scenes on paper, id try to emulate everything he was doing. Around the age of 14 or 15, some friends and i decided to build our own tattoo machine out of a fork and remote control car motor. Before i knew it I was tattooing all the kids in my local crowd with very simple, basic designs. Until one day-a friend requested a sleeve of skulls. From that moment on I knew in the back of my mind I wanted to be involved with the craft of tattooing.
