I’d describe myself as better experienced than explained… Irreverent by nature and low brow by choice, I’m not happy unless you’ve enjoyed being tattooed as much as the tattoo itself. I’ve been tattooing professionally for over ten years now and though mostly self taught, I have Neil England, Andrew Pequita and the entire crew of Mooncusser Tattoo to thank as my biggest influences. From cover-ups to traditional, and black and grey realism to something more new school, I’ve been blessed with very good friends who have provided me with a background in a very diverse range of styles and techniques. Since moving to Somers Point, NJ in 2012 I have become a member of Atlantic Lodge #221, making Freemasonry the biggest part of my life outside of tattooing. In my spare time I enjoy shooting guns and drinking a nice glass of scotch, usually not at the same time.
