I believe in the traditions of tattooing and the potential of expression. I love to see the spontaneity of the sketch preserved in a tattoo, and the personal growth of my clients that the tattoos I create. I'm well versed and adaptive to all formal styles of tattooing, but my focus is on the time tested techniques of traditional with a refined edge.

I've had the honor of being in the industry for 20 years, and in that time I have been fortunate enough to tattoo along side some of the best and benefit from their influence. I continue to fall more in love with it as time goes on. Seeing the positive impact it can make on the lives of others has been the most rewarding aspect for me. It has been the all consuming force in my life and I'm grateful for it everyday.

Outside of tattooing I'm usually spending time with my son. I also enjoy cooking and collecting antique cookbooks. When I'm not at the shop I can often be found cycling through rural Ohio.
