    I specialize in traditional American tattoos, with my own take, own style… but always at their core, they’re bold traditional that leans on more than 100 years of history.

I like using old stories, secret society vibe and imagery in my drawings and flash, always with a nod to the history and where our style came from.

My tattoos, my paintings, tattoo flash all reflect the things I’ve loved my whole life.
