It all began with drawing but through my younger years progressed in every way from music to photography to writing to dancing to painting. But in the end illustration always came most natural and it got the majority of my attention. Tattooing specifically caught my heart very off guard, actually. The idea of a job in the arts that was based around illustration, with such a freeing lifestyle, no judgement, no formal education necessary (although I had already gone to college for my bachelors in fine arts) and such a pirate lifestyle; I was totally down for it. I began tattooing before I even had one on my body. But one fateful day made me fall madly in love with the art form.
