 1974​, Monterey Bay Native

​​

I'm an artist of a variety of different media. My art inspiration came from my adolescent admiration of nature, fine art, custom cars and the colorful lowrider culture. at a young age other kids would hound me to draw classic cars for them. at a young age I was able to capture art techniques of recognizing lines, shading and shapes in the subject matter I was drawing. Another artistic turning point in my life was when I would hang out at family friend's auto body shop.  I then came to realize that people actually admired the custom colors my hands would correlate together. Since then I have taken on different art forms. Every day above ground I live to polish up my skills in spray-painting, photography, and drawing on canvas and most of all drawing on live flesh…TATTOOING.

 

This website is mostly comprised of tattoos I have created. I take pride in considering myself to be very versatile tattoo artist. My versatility can be seen through out this website and the styles of tattoos shown include   traditional, neo-traditional, black & grey  realism portraits and cover ups. I hope you all enjoy viewing them as much as I  have enjoyed creating them.​

I am open to new artistic projects of all sorts. Please feel free to contact me any ideas, positive suggestions or QUOTES!
