Salutations! I am a professional tattooer and freelance illustrator. I love tattooing as an art, and I think it’s pretty cool that I get to make someone’s day by bringing their expressive ideas to life.
I am naturally creative, and I am especially fascinated by the complexity of insects, animals and science. Early on, I drew nature in caricature, and then in scientific detail–I grew to illustrate animals and people in portraiture for myself and also for commission. (My preferences are pencil and charcoal, but I also love watercolors!) My original works in both illustration and tattoos are nature-based, and I really enjoy blending new ideas with classic concepts; black & grey realism and timeless storybook themes are two of my favorite custom styles, and I love doing detailed pieces, large and small.
There is a personal element to this sort of shared artwork that impresses me on a daily basis. I had already been tattooed when I decided in 2008 to learn more about the craft and process behind it. I was able to start my career in the industry, and I have worked alongside truly gifted tattoo artists who have furthered my appreciation for the skills involved in every tattoo. After moving recently to the Lancaster area, I was given the opportunity to join the crew here at 717 Tattoo, at the Columbia location. I am excited to be able to work with such a talented group of artists!
