Where you tat: Tg Tat

Why you started tattooing: I was always into drawing and had some tattoo artist friends who talked me into being an apprentice.

What style of tattooing do you enjoy the most: I love American Traditional, but really I seriously LOVE LETTERING!!!

Who inspires you to tattoo: People like Myke Chambers and Victor Portugul…it’s an endless list!!! Plus everybody I’ve ever got to tattoo with that LOVES the art and industry… (not just money).

If you could tattoo anywhere in the world where would you go: It would have to be somewhere warm! Lol. But probably Amsterdam or Australia.

Tell me your favorite tattoo story about one of your clients: Probably this old guy who told me he walked around the Salton Sea 4 times! He had me tattoo his daughters name on him for the 39th time!
