Born in the frozen tundra of Minnesota, art was always my true passion. Constantly flipping through the pages of countless coloring books as a child, I continued to practice what I knew would someday turn into a lifelong career. I started my path in the tattoo industry in May of 2009. After 5 years in Minnesota as a professional tattoo artist, I took a giant leap and headed to the Sonoran Desert to escape the harsh northern winters. I consider myself to be a neo-traditional/illustrative tattooer, but I also enjoy the challenge and reward of black and grey portrait tattoos. I absolutely love what I do and find great joy in taking a client’s idea and turning it into something they never knew was possible. I take great pride in my work and always want the next tattoo to be better than the last.
