Born and raised in the military town of Wichita Falls, TX. All I saw was tattoo shops outside Sheppard Air Force Base on the way to grandmas house everyday after school. She encouraged me to draw to pass time from the time I was 5 years old.
My first drawing was a ninja turtle that was so big I had to tape two pieces of paper together to get the whole body. All done in crayon. It was taped on her closet door and it stayed there for her to see everyday until she passed away when I was 12. That day it was buried with her.
In high school, of course art was my favorite subject. My teacher of all four years, Mrs. Smith, encouraged me to find a way to make a living with my art. So naturally, I turned to tattoos after growing up seeing the shops everyday. After graduating from the University of Phoenix with an Associate’s Degree in Visual Communications, I apprenticed in 2012 and became fully licensed by the Wichita Falls Health dept. in 2013.
During my apprenticeship I learned various styles of tattooing but I have always had a particular interest in black and grey tattoos. Finding new ways to add depth and dimension to my tattoos, I am constantly polishing my technique. Most of my work is drawn right on the skin of my client, but when I do portraits I use exact copies of the picture.
After working at two of the best shops in Wichita Falls, A Different Drummer and Altered Images, I decided to move to one of the biggest tattoo hot spots in the country. So here I am, in the best city in Texas. Doing what I love, with the best team any artist can ask for.
