I started tattooing around 1995-1996 at Absolute Tattooing in Menomonee Falls, WI . Apprenticing under Scott Friedrich ,John De Caire III and Rich Thomas. I was fortunate to start my career with some talented artist such as Jesse Santoro, Dan Hazelton, Julio Avila and Eddie Jackson. All have grown into accomplished artist in their own right. After running Absolute Tattooing in Sheboygan, WI for 3 years I had the opportunity to expand my horizons and move on. Doing guest spots, working at numerous shops and tattoo conventions around the country and gained considerable knowledge during that time.
I can't even begin to
start a list of all the great and knowledgeable artist
I've met and picked the brains of in my career, but I thank
them all! My last shop was working at Capitol City Tattoo
in Madison, WI where I had the great opportunity to excel
at what I do best, black and gray portraits and worked
with some incredible artist.
I enjoy doing every style
of tattooing , but concentrate mostly on black and gray
portrait inspired pieces and realism. Check out my work!
