Working in tattoo shops since the age of 17, piercing and managing tattoo shops. Started apprenticing in 2008, at Love Hate Miami (aka Miami Ink.) "Love classic Americana tattoo based designs, and calligraphy. Some of my personal Inspirations include artists Chris Garver, Tim Lehi, Chris Conn, Sailor Jerry, Ed Hardy, Jeff Rassier , Scott Sylvia, and Marcus Pacheco…. too much to name really, but pretty much all the people who paved the way to how far tattooing has progressed artistically."
