I grew up in Miami, Florida, and moved to Texas in 1985. I began my tattoo career in Austin in the early 1990s, and have been very lucky to have worked with a very talented and diverse array of artists throughout my career. I have a great appreciation for many different styles of tattooing, and have seen the industry evolve from the “pick-n-stick” flash art era, to the almost completely custom- designed tattooing of today.
My style of artwork reflects my reverence for the history and appreciation for the evolution of the tattoo industry. I like the bold simplicity of the “American Traditional” style, but also try to include elements of other tattoo styles into my work. Having seen the tattooing undergo such a rise in public acceptance and popularity; as well as the innovations taking place within the industry, makes me very excited about the future of the art form.
