"I'm simply an artist who genuinely cares about giving my customers the best tattoo and overall experience that I possibly can."
Since a child, I've dedicated the majority of my time studying, practicing, and trying to perfect many different artforms to the best of my abilities. I'm always trying my best to develop a style that is recognizable as my own and will forever try to progress and learn.
As a teenager, I was welcomed into the graffiti world from other local artists who pushed me to expand outside of my comfort zones. I eventually took the knowledge and skills I accumulated over the years and began drawing tattoo designs for friends. I've always been a fan of tattoos, so the transition from graffiti to tattoos felt natural. After learning about different tattoo styles, I decided to take my new found love for the art and put together a portfolio in search of a tattoo apprenticeship.
I was offered the opportunity to learn in Fort Myers, Florida 19 years ago and have had the pleasure of working with some of the best artists the industry has to offer. In 2010, I moved back home to Wisconsin to be closer to friends and family and give my two kids some snow to play.
After working at a few shops over the years and traveling throughout the country doing tattoo conventions, I found my home at Rockstar Tattoo & Co with some amazingly talented artists.
