An Iowa native, I got my start in Des Moines. I began my career as an apprentice in 2006, and have progressed from the original shop to work with a variety of amazing artists to learn from. Not content with just one or two specific styles, I have jumped at the chance to try new forms of art, and push myself to be able to do a good job on any tattoo that comes my way. Whether its a color piece, black and grey, memorial, new school or old, I want to be able to do it. With a wide range of technique and skill, I take pride in my versatility and my professional demeanor.
