Native of New York state, Boston transplant. Moved here in 2015 with the intention of finding a tattoo apprenticeship, persistence paid off and I landed a chance at empire. I began tattooing in 2016 under the tutelage of Neil England. My love for art began at an early age, and I did my first commission in the 3rd grade. I love to tattoo American traditional, like doing color and black work, though I look to expand upon the basics any chance I find whether drawing or tattooing I just aim to be the best version of myself and soak up what I can like a sponge. My tattooing influences are of course, the dudes who brought me into this industry, but I find inspiration in the work of Marina Inoue, Joe Ellis, Paul Dobelman, that Russian dude who does solid black work,….. etc
