I'm a second generation tattoo artist born in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Was first introduced to tattooing at eleven visiting a shop my father and uncle both worked at. My father, uncle and cousin are all professional tattoo artists. I attended MInneapolis College of Art and Design on a summer scholarship program when I was 12 years old for Graphic Design and Comic Illustration with Darkhorse Comics. I had a 6 year apprenticeship in various positions and settings before starting a "working apprenticeship" when I graduated high school. My father was my mentor. I started tattooing at Lake Geneva Tattoo which was established in 1964. I have been tattooing for 13 years and I am looking forward to the progression of the artform as I continue my career. I don't specialize in just one style. I like doing everything from realism, to lettering, traditional, newschool, watercolor, and beyond. Growing up in a high traffic tattoo environment has allowed me to hone my ability to design and develop what a client is looking for and more relatively quickly. I look forward to doing some awesome artwork on some awesome people!
