I was born the son of a Tattooer and the obsession began...by the time I was 12 I was an informal apprentice, doing all the dirty work for my dad and the guys at the shop, by the time I was 14 I got my first tattoo and by 16 I was tattooing full time as a professional! That was all it took to start my life long relationship/immersion into the world of tattoo!!! Fast forward almost 20 years and we can look back at the 15 years I worked for my family in a super busy street shop working all day and night at times because aside from my son there was nothing more important to me than to master my craft...in 2007 I began doing conventions and have done some conventions and guest spots overseas and in Canada teaching me so much from different artists about how they make art, tattoos, and good business. I had the fine and crazy experience of being on the hit tattoo tv show Inkmaster in 2014 which was a whirlwind of emotion and nutty trials and tribulations that have helped forge me into an even stronger Tattooer and all around person! My main motivation in life is LOVE, and my studio is named Chapel of Love with my favorite tag line "Always using LOVE as my #1 ingredient" not because it's a good sales tactic but because it's really how I operate through and through!!!!!
