ABOUT
ABOUT ME

I am a professional tattooist of twenty-five years.

 

My career began in Phoenix, AZ and has since led me halfway around the world: As a lover of travel, I am thankful!

 

My current location is in my home, on the edge of beautiful Allegheny Forest/River, PA

Most of my time is spent close to home or at the cabin with my fur baby...

 

...  otherwise hiking, bicycling, designing tattoos, painting and gardening.

Currently learning/practicing Work/Life Balance.

I do tattoos for a living; by invitation/ personal reservation.

* My studio is not open to the public.

WHAT I'VE DONE

My career began when I was fifteen years old. As a child I leaned heavily toward art... and jumped at the offer of an official tattoo apprenticeship (1993).

Since then, I have built and sold four shops of my own: Three in Florida, the fourth in my home state of Pennsylvania...

 

Between travels, I have worked for a few celebrity shops including Hart & Huntington Orlando, Huntington Ink Las Vegas, Starlight Tattoo and Chester Bennington's Club Tattoo...

 

My most recent endeavor is a

home based tattoo boutique with hopes it will become a sanctuary of sorts, for me and all who may visit.

WHAT I DO

Random crafts: Try so many but stick with none...

Paint: Only when a mood strikes...

Garden: I am just starting to learn...

Housewife: Never thought I'd actually find 'the one'...

Bicycle: Easy does it...

Kayak: Yes... moving water please!

Adventure: Sure! Let's go!!

Raccoons and bears: LOVE.

Tattoos: Yes... Very selectively though.

PORTFOLIO

Large or small; my favorite style is simple illustrated black linework/design. I don't mind including a splash of color... especially if it's watercolor!
