Before tattooing I used to teach snowboarding which I did for 10 years and before that a had a heap of jobs from bar work to being a chef.
I specialise in black and grey and colour realism, I do like doing different styles now and again however but I do love doing colour realism.
I love spending time with my family and when I’m not I’m either snowboarding or being a nerd and playing computer games.
Seeing the outcome of the tattoo and watching the customers face, tbh I love all aspects of tattooing and pushing myself to be better, I wouldn’t call it a job either!
Meaningful to a customer wise was doing a first tattoo on an 80 yr old customer which was a portrait of his beloved wife who sadly passed away. Meaningful to me was the Tupac colour portrait I did as I was proud of my achievement with it and I could actually see my progress and from me being my harshest critic it meant a lot. I could see what I would do differently now but I was happy with the end result.
