Tattoo

Like most artistically inclined children, Daniel was told from an early age “Don’t quit your day job”. This was confusing, considering he didn’t have a day job at the time, so he decided to go into electronics.

After a tour in the United States Navy as a radar technician, and a short stint as a professional tech in the civilian world, Daniel decided that grown up life sucked, and he went into building fine furniture. Using the funds created from woodworking to hatch an evil plan to become a tattooist, he began his tattoo career in 2006 (diverting for a short amount of time to hone his evil run-on sentence abilities).

Daniel spent the first years of his tattoo career working seven days a week, twelve hours per day, doing the best he could to make himself as competent at his craft as he could manage. Tattooing has established itself as a true love and passion in Daniel’s life.

Now after years of hard work, Daniel is proud resident at Slave to the Needle, ready to provide you with all the silliness, hard work, and dedication he has to offer.

A little Kappa for Joe. Just the start here. I like to do hands in a couple of sittings. Especially for people who work with their hands. Makes healing more manageable and work less problematic.

Fun lil one shot from a year or two ago. I always love seeing my work healed. Gives me an opportunity to show that what I'm building stands the test of time. Tattoos don't stay the same as the day you apply them. They grow and change with you. It's important to build with that in mind. Thanks for coming to my ted talk.
