I have over 24 years as a successful tattoo artist. In 1999, I co-created Pulse International, a tattoo supply company, out of a desire to improve the tools of the trade and the experience of fellow artists. Together, Brett Bryan and I built the business from the seed of an idea to a flourishing leader in the industry. At Pulse, I created not only prototypes for better machines, but reinvented the way artists work on and with those very machines. In doing so, I’ve built a reputation for innovation and generosity within the community.
Whether making machines to improve the efficiency and ergonomics of the art of tattooing, or creating original designs and tableaux to clients’ specific aesthetic choices, my heart is in everything I do.
I’ve been tattooing for 18 years. I have a background in technical art, having studied architecture in college. I enjoy the creative freedom that tattooing gives me, and I love to create original drawings for my clients so their tattoos are designed just for them. My passion for all types of art pushes me to constantly progress as an artist. I have the full support of my wife and my children who inspire me every day. I'm also grateful for the wonderful clientele I've been fortunate enough to work with over the years, and I look forward to many more years of collaboration with them. Hopefully I will continue to create art in all forms for a very long time to come.
