Spotlight Artist

"I have been tattooing since 2007. Tattooing to me is art on skin and art has been my passion since I was a young kid. When I tattoo a client, I bring my artistic ability to the tattoo. I strive to deliver a unique and personal feel to every tattoo that I give. Designing tattoos for clients is one of my favorite parts about tattooing. I love bringing to life the ideas that clients have by making them into tattoos."
