Artist Statement

My main focus is on the link between tattooing and ancient humanity. Therein, I believe, lies a certain power. The power to lay claim over ones own body and to exercise will. I enjoy the process of collaborating with clients on ideas and bringing them into the physical realm. My aesthetic is one that relies heavily on symbolism and is bold in shape and form. The styles that I am working within are Geometric/Dotwork, Japanese, and Biomech/Bioorganic.
