I was born in San Diego, California. Tattooing was not my first calling for my career choice. I began my journey as an artist in the United States Army for eight years in Fort Bragg, North Carolina. While I was transitioning out of the military I was offered an opportunity to learn how to tattoo. After finishing up my apprenticeship I moved to Phoenix, Arizona. Once I was in Arizona I knew art and the tattoo industry was my passion. I then decided to further my skills by enrolling into college and get a degree in fine arts. At first I thought my style of tattooing was going to be American traditional, I quickly found that my skills and talent rested with fine line black work. I have been tattooing professionally since 2013. I charge $120 an hour and take appointments as well as walk-ins.
