One of my goals has always been to make art my career. Tattooing has given me that opportunity since 2005. My style would be considered Illustrative. I like tattooing images that have a sense of realism but I also use graphic elements like bold lines, stippling, and bold coloring and shading when the piece calls for it. I also really enjoy to replicate existing artwork like paintings, drawings, and sketches from old and modern masters on skin. It’s a fun challenge to keep the details as close to the original while still making it work as a tattoo that will hold up over time.
