I started tattooing around 2006 when I got a hold of a machine and a few friends that were willing to let me tattoo them. Once I realized the potential of where this could go, I looked around the area for a formal apprenticeship. I landed an apprenticeship at Guido's which only lasted a few months before I decided it was in my best interest to leave. From there I finished my apprenticeship at Winky Dink Ink where I still work today. I try to focus on improving at every chance I get. Every tattoo I do is a learning experience. I received a fine arts degree from SVA and I try to apply as much formal training as I can to each and every tattoo that I do.
