I've tattooed my way to circumnavigate the planet twice now, earning my self-imposed title of "traveling tattooer," racking up working at 30+ different shops in too many different countries and continents and to count. Ive spent the better part of a decade on the road and won't stop until I have that decade under my belt. 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 my career 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 and the many before them and those carrying the fire now and being versatile enough to tattoo in nearly every style. I aim to treat every client with respect and do everything in my power to make sure that if you show up before closing, you'll get fucking tattooed. Im 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 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 don't want to ever be remembered for being 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. I don't have a homely life is difficult and beautiful and 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 $100 to $200 USD per hour.
