Tattoo

Born and raised in New Mexico, I moved to Arizona and began tattooing in 2007. I moved up to Seattle with my wife and our three sons to escape the heat! I love to draw, paint, and tattoo, particularly designing custom tattoos that fit and flow with the body. I love it when a client’s vision come to life! I find pleasure in both large and small tattoos. I am all about bold, crisp line work and saturated, bold values both in black and grey and color work. I feel I am a well rounded artist and am proficient in many styles, but I do hold heavy interests in anything Japanese or Asian influenced, skulls, flowers, and all kinds of masks. Oh, and also got to love those strange and unusual concepts! I look forward to hearing all your ideas and creating your next tattoo. Cheers!
