I have been creating with my hands since I was very young. If I was not taking apart something and rebuilding it, I was drawing, air brushing, and doing all types of painting. I am honestly not fully satisfied unless I am creating something with my hands. I come from a long line of engineers, musicians, and artists. So, I guess you can say it is in my blood to create.

I have been drawing since I was a young kid, but did not truly see my potential until I was in junior high school. My 7th grade art teacher accused me of tracing and copying my assignments. It made me so mad that I had to get my mother to verify that I was actually doing the drawing. I always had my sketch book with me. My sketch book was filled with graffiti style cartoons and art. My teachers were amazed at my abilities and I was offered scholarships to art schools along with being offered a job with Walt Disney.

Tattooing came into my life around 14 years of age. I saw a tattoo on this guy arm of a naked lady. I asked him what it was and he told me it was a tattoo. I never really heard or maybe paid attention to tattoos until then. I never really new you could tattoo art on a person so I started looking into tattoos as much as a 14 yr old could do.

I built my first tattoo machine out of a tape deck and pen. I did my first tattoo on a friend and it turned out pretty bad. It was a pot leaf that looked like a feather or a fern. I went pretty deep and scared him up pretty bad. It was proof that I needed a ton of practice.

I have been tattooing on and off for about 15 years now. Tattooing has never been real popular until all the reality shows kicked in. Body modification in all forms were kept real underground. Tattoos are now looked at as art instead of trash. People from all walks of life are getting tattooed and this has opened up a whole new world for tattoo artists.

My favorite form of tattooing is realism, fantasy realism and Japanese art. Those forms of art bring a great challenge to me as I bring to life a persons friend and or family member. Japanese art is fantasy realism at its best. I can go on what seems like forever with Japanese art.

I get paid to do what I love for a living. I can not ask for anything better. As long as I can create with my art and be challenged everyday, I am an extremely happy man.
