I have been tattooing professionally since 2008, after getting my start at a shop in the Midwest shortly after graduating high school. I fell in love with tattooing but took a long road to making it my profession after eventually finding myself in the Pacific Northwest. I respect the magic of tattooing daily and I am truly grateful to be one of the lucky few who can get paid for doing what they love. Tattooing inspires me, challenges me, humbles me, and enables me to provide for my family. I owe my life to the craft and to the badass clients I get to meet along the way. My specialties are in Japanese and American traditional style tattooing, but I am open to all ideas and enjoy other styles. I own and operate Water Street Tattoo in Port Townsend, WA. I also make regular trips to Seattle to guest spot at Hidden Hand Tattoo in Fremont.
