I started tattooing in the early 2000s in Columbus, Ohio but have been around tattooers and artists since I was a teenager.
I attended art college in Columbus briefly but decided to travel the states instead. After some time on the road I came back to Ohio and started my tattoo career.
I like to do fully custom, large scale, color tattoos; specializing in Traditional Japanese inspired work. I draw influence from the Japanese ukiyo-e artists such as Yoshitoshi, Hokusai, and Kuniyoshi.
I enjoy the obscure and dark side of Asian art, along with Buddhist and Tibetan imagery.
I’ve also traveled extensively in the past few years, doing guest spots and international conventions, including Singapore, and Eindhoven.
“Art distills sensation and embodies it with enhanced meaning in memorable form-or else it is not art.”
