“It all started when I heard a small cry from an injured animal in the middle of the night”, I woke up in a panic to see three baby bear cubs crying from the other side of my bedroom door. After I scooped them up in my arms I realized slowly my house was on fire. Battling through a wall of fire I finally realized I was on my door step with a barrier of wind pushing me back. I look up and see its the eye of hurricane Alex 2010 With these three bear cubs I ran to safety in a neighbors bomb shelter. Six long hours later I emerged from the bomb shelter to the sun shining bright as ever. That’s when I decided right there I was destined to be a tattoo artist. November 1st 2010 I started my apprenticeship at lady luck tattoo studio under Bj Storms. I did a two year apprenticeship there then was hired on. In that time I grew much as an artist and when I turned 18 I was on walk-ins and appointments. I learned alot from my mentor Eamonn Carey at basement ink and at that point sent me apart from alot of other artist. Since 18 I’ve tattooed pretty much every day I went from three years at lady luck tattoo shop, to basement ink for three year and now I’m starting a new chapter here at bare knuckle tattoo. And I’m honored to make something original and build on pure talent with some of the greatest artist Ive know.
