I’ve been tattooing since 94 ‘ which is when I got an apprenticeship in Victoria bc . I’m proficient in many styles of tattooing such as solid colour , black and grey , poly tribal and geometric . I like to tattoo new school , old school trad , black ‘n grey , Japanese, poly tribal , as well as henna and mandalas. I have been building tattoo machine for my whole career. I build coils , rotaries and hand pokers, and tattoo with what I build in my machine shop.
I have been influenced by pop culture video games, movies and cartoons witch shows up in my artwork and tattoos .
My current favourite art medium is copic markers, however I do paint regularly with oils or acrylics and am constantly building cool toys in the machine shop like wizard wands and laser guns and star trek phasers, yes real ones ..
