Biography Tattoo Artist
Born and raised in Wilmington, Delaware, I began drawing and taking art classes at an early age. In 1991, I attended Savannah College of Art Design (SCAD) in Savannah, Georgia, where I specialized in painting and graphic design. Upon graduation from SCAD with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree, I worked for many years in the field of graphic design. Using my art background and experience to help my tattooing skills developed over the years.
It was during this time period that I learned about the craft of tattooing. I decided to attend several tattoo conventions before making the decision to formally enter the tattoo industry. At first, tattooing proved to be challenge for me, with transferring paper art onto the skin. As the years progressed, the ability of my tattoo skills has become easier, and I still welcome the opportunity to grow even further when a client wants or brings in a piece that is challenging.
During my career, I spent over five years tattooing clients in the Columbia, South Carolina area and one year in the Pensacola, Florida area. In May 2015, I moved to Tampa, Florida, where I am in the process of building a client base.
While enhancing my tattooing skills, I’ve had the opportunity to work and train under some really talented tattoo artists. I’m always looking forward to meeting more artists in person, and anyone who loves collecting art work.
