Hello there! I am a highly motivated tattooer who enjoys all aspects of the tattoo industry. There is something to be said about taking someone’s idea and putting it to paper, then to skin, and forever having that connection to a person for the rest of their life; and possibly helping that person grow from it or find the power in a tattoo to face the world with a newfound strength. I have been tattooing since 2003. I apprenticed at Explosive Tattoo in Salisbury, Maryland under JJ Simon and the rest of the crew there (thanks guys) for two years. After my graduation, I moved to Florida where I tattooed for some time but, I missed Maryland and moved back to tattoo next to my mentors. I then moved to Columbus and have worked at a hand full of shops in the area. I worked at Evolved for six years and wanted to spread my wings and see what is out there. However, I am glad to say that I am back home at Evolved and could not be happier. I enjoy doing the more traditional style of tattooing with my own swing on it, as well as some black work such as mandalas. So with that said, I would love to take your ideas and put them to skin.
