Looking for my non-tattoo art? It's been moved here.
I also started a new blog to show work as it's happening.

I've been tattooing professionally since 1998, while pursuing a parallel love of comics, illustration, and renegade art. I love quirky, animated tattoos that tell a story--animals, birds, robots, bicycles, delicious or vicious vegetables, you name it. My favorite designs combine the organic and inorganic, the real and the imaginary--animals, people and things in mid-transformation or mid-mutation. I love to take a good story, feeling or idea and translate it into evocative visual form that tickles the gut more than the intellect. If the resulting image is a little strange, visceral, funny or rude, even better!

Most fundamentally, though, I enjoy collaborating with a client to come up with something that we both want to show off. I like large tattoos that follow the natural shape of the body and I also like little things that get straight to the point. Technically, I tend to strong, clean lines with detailed color and shading that make imaginary things feel boldly alive.

I am currently working out of a private studio. I'm happy to answer any questions you have. Contact me here.

Thanks for your interest!
