I am an artist/designer hailing from the great state of Pennsylvania. I work as a tattooist, exhibiting fine artist, freelance graphic designer, and screen printer. Yeah I pretty much never sleep.

In the past  I studied painting and graphic design at the Savannah College of Art & Design. It was there that I experimented and honed in on various practices from fine arts to commercial mediums.

My start in tattooing came while in Georgia, but am currently back up north in Philadelphia. My tendency for travel has found me guest tattooing in other shops across the country as well as overseas and am always looking for new connections. I do custom black and grey, neo-traditional Americana, Japanese, lettering, dotwork, and cover-up work. Just bring to me your ideas and we will materialize them.

If you have any design or printing needs please contact me for consultation.  In addition to brokering print jobs and in house screen printing I am available for logo design, graphic apparel, advertising, album covers, posters, flyers, stickers, business cards, websites, product labels, packaging, and much more… I have a portfolio viewable on Coroflot as well.

If you would like to purchase a painting or print be sure to view what art and merch are added to my Etsy and Big Cartel shops regularly.
