I originally started tattooing on some friends when I was 16 in high school. I knew early on that I wanted to be a tattoo artist. I picked up my first professional job with Junior Purvis in 97’ in a busy shop out of Indianapolis, Indiana. I worked with Junior for about 4 years before relocating up to Chicago Illinois to a “street style” shop. It was after working in Chicago for 5 ½ years that I feel I became a very well-rounded tattoo artist. Eventually I opened up my own shop, NO REGRETS TATTOOS & BODY PIERCING in Champaign Illinois in early 2007. I enjoy doing all different styles of work; from realistic portraiture style, color, and black and grey. I most enjoy doing custom work working 1 on 1 with the ideas from my customers to come up with a unique, one-of-a-kind piece.
