I grew up loving art and sports in Pittsburgh, Pa. My love of art came from artists such as Stan Lee n Todd Mcfarlane of marvel comics and spawn. After graduation I decide that the Art Institute of Pittsburgh was going to be where I furthered my art. Realizing it wasn’t what I wanted to do, knowing I love tattoos and with a gentle push from my girlfriend I found an apprenticeship at a small shop in Penn Hills called Flesh Factory. After that I moved on to Monroeville and a shop called Tattoo blvd. I am now calling Empire Tattoo Pittsburgh my home and looking forward to putting my tattoo style to good use.
