I'm a tattoo artist from South Carolina. I've been drawing and painting since I was a little kid. I learned to tattoo in 2006 while in the Marines, stationed in Okinawa Japan. While on active duty, I could only tattoo in my spare time, which definitely made it hard to focus on getting better. When I got out of the Corps in 2010, I started tattooing full time in Columbia, South Carolina. At the beginning of my second year of tattooing professionally, I began to travel to conventions around the area to learn and advance my skills as an artist. As the years went on, I began to do more and more shows as well as guest spots around the country. In August of 2015, my wife and I relocated to Columbus, Ohio, so that she could persue her Masters degree, and I began working at Riot Ink.
I mostly do new school and color realism tattoos, but I like to vary styles depending on the piece/client. Ultimately, I just like to tattoo, and welcome the chance to do something cool and challenging. Thanks for checking out my website, and contact me if you have any questions, comments, or just feel like saying hello.
