I have been tattooing for 26 years and have resided and tattooed in London, Paris, Osaka, Sydney, Buenos Aires and many other cities. I now tattoo in Santa Barbara, CA. I have been traveling the world for over two decades and have studied many different styles.
I am drawn to Hindu, Tibetan, early Edo period Japanese art and the bold classic folk art Americana designs. I also like the fine line black and grey style that emanated from California in the seventies Latino culture and also enjoy variations of geometric non figurative blackwork. I attended Columbia University in New York City and have been studying art for over thirty years.
I am a respected artist who has a wealth of experience and I am also an accomplished tattoo machine builder. I am technically very clean and fast. I am very discerning about what projects I take on and will only do pieces that are interesting to me. Please refer to the TAM article in the press section to read more about my evolution as a tattooer.
