I from a small town known as Walkerton, IN. I have always enjoyed and pursued art. Later in life, I attended Art School at CCAD (Columbus College of Art and Design). I majored in Advertising and Graphic Design.
For most of my life, all I ever wanted was to be a fine artist, an oil painter, to be exact. Being a tattoo artist does allow me the financial freedom to be an artist, but tattooing is what I primarily focus on.
Many people would describe my style as watercolor or label me as a watercolor tattoo artist. I don’t see myself like that; my vision for a tattoo is to be a unique piece of art. I do admire smooth blends and a more artistic approach when tattooing.
I started tattooing in 2010 at Nadwe’zibe Tattoos and Piercings (Niles, MI), then in 2012 to 2017, I was an artist at Serenity Ink (Milwaukee, WI). Both jobs taught me a lot, and I appreciate both owners more than I can say. I now tattoo at Ink Spot Tattoo Studio, which is a beautiful shop near the heart of Bay View, WI. I am appointment only.
I don’t work conventions or travel much. I feel I do my best work in the shop environment I’m used to. But once a year, I travel to a big convention to meet other artists or guest spot in my hometown of Indiana.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read about me; I hope to hear and know a little about you.
