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. 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.
Spend some time checking out my online tattoo portfolio. Then take a look at my biography and frequently asked questions page. I make art in other media as well; check out my illustration
work and fine art practice.
I am currently working on both sides of the Bay: I have a private studio in the Mission District in San Francisco, and I am also taking appointments at Diving Swallow Tattoo in downtown Oakland. I'm happy to answer any questions you have. Contact me here.
Thanks for your interest!
