I started tattooing in 1994 in Austin, Texas. I specialize in traditional Japanese tattooing. I am practicing freehand-style tattooing, where everything is drawn directly on the body with a brush. This method helps me try to achieve proper irezumi that fits the body as perfectly as possible. I enjoy the personal relationship that developes with the customer over the course of these big projects, and I truly appreciate the level of trust my clients put in my work.
