- I started tattooing because I was interested in helping people use their bodies as a platform to express themselves through symbols and art. My style is trying to find beauty in the darker side of art. I really like surreal art.
- I hope the people I work with can feel happier and more confident in their lives with their new tattoos!

- I like lettering, logo design and tribal style artwork but I am learning about many different types of art to develop my own style.
