I've tattooed my way to circumnavigate the planet twice now, earning my self-imposed title of "traveling tattooer." During my ten year career I have worked at 30+ tattoo shops in too many countries and continents to count. I've spent most of my career and 20% of my life on the road with no plans to stop until I have a decade traveling under my belt to match poor, tormented Odysseus. During my travels I have learned from many cultures, styles and techniques of tattooing. My life is full of incredible experiences and awe inspiring discovery that I accredit to , this job, my ridiculous luck and my gypsy heart. To me, a few things always remain constant: the importance of sticking to the traditional rules of the art as set down by Coleman, Jerry, Zeke Owens, Hardy, Mike Malone and all those living and dead that carry the fire so that men like me can apply this sacred craft. I work to be versatile enough to tattoo in nearly every style while treating my clients with respect while working with an ethic to make sure that if you show up before closing, you'll get tattooed. I'm a street shop tattooer for life, I love not having a clue what ill be doing that day. I don't do back pieces or portraits, save that for the big tattooers. This business can be nasty and bitter but I try my best not to get sucked in by its negativity. I try to have each of my clients leave with an experience, not just a tattoo that will look good until they're dead. Im obnoxious, I'm fun, I say a lot of shit I shouldn't in hopes that my clients will always remember me for that. I would loathe being remembered as the typical asshole "cool guy" tattooer with a long wait and a shitty attitude. When you come into the shop, I make sure you feel comfortable and know that I'm not better than you, in the end, I just have a fucking tattoo machine and have put the time in to apply better tattoos with each day. I don't have a home and who knows where I could be next but if we cross paths, my desire is that we can make you a permanent souvenir to mark part of your life journey. My rates are typically determined by the shop where I'll be working, which the industry standard is anywhere from $100 to $200 USD per hour.
