What is your favorite tattoo style?
I enjoy all styles of tattooing, but if where forced to only tattoo one way…I would say tattoos that have appropriate line variances, bold bright colors and a fun eye catching image. So that would let me tattoo traditional, neo-traditional and newschool imagery.
Who are some of your favorite artists?
There are so many artist out there that I enjoy. It would be hard to pick a couple and say they are my favorite. There is one artist that kind of started it for me, enjoying tales of a boy and his pet tiger. Of course I am talking about Bill Watterson’s Calvin and Hobbes. I still to this day find myself getting lost in a little boys adventure.
What inspires you in your art?
It’s hard to say what inspires one to create. There are many factors, all different at times. I think it’s life in general that inspires people to do things and that is what I think inspires me the most.
What, or who, got you into tattooing?
I can’t remember when I started drawing, I was young. I was 18 and getting tattooed back in 1999 by a artist named Jason Strunk. During one of my every two week tattoo appoontments, he was firing his apprentice. We got to talking about how one could mess up a opportunity like that. One thing lead to another and he asked if I wanted to give it a shot. That’s how I started tattooing.
I have been tattooing about 16 years. I was born in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Spent some time in Germany and finally settled in the tri-county area around Pottstown.
