Tattoos | Digital Art | Fine Art

Hello and thanks for stopping by!  I'm a tattoo artist who works with digital and fine art, currently based in Austin, TX.  Take some time to check out my tattoo work, as well as my digital and fine art pieces I have available - if you're interested in getting any of it then get in touch!

In early 2019, I left my original home studio In The Skin in Victoria, TX to guest spot in different states and studios.  I wound up landing a spot at Shaman Modifications North Austin,TX and ultimately it became my new home base!

I occasionally travel to Victoria, TX (In The Skin) and Joshua Tree, CA (Ink & Steel) for guest spots and will add to the list.  I plan to learn a lot of new things and look forward to meeting new people here and at other studios across the States!


Check out my work and see what we're up to at the North studio on Instagram!

I was born in San Antonio and grew up around Texas until graduating high school, when I moved to Arizona to study Graphic Design & Animation.  I've loved art since my brother introduced me to "Beavis and Butthead" at the early age of 4.  Through the years I've practiced and adopted techniques that have helped evolve my perspective and how I approach my designs.

Circumstances gave me a chance to start my tattoo apprenticeship when I was 23.  Eight years later I left my first tattoo home to broaden my horizon: I wanted to enjoy new experiences and memories, and learn new techniques.  Ultimately I found Shaman Modifications where Pineapple, Jon, and Jade brought me in!

I've experimented with a variety of materials and styles over the years, and apply them to my tattoo work.  I design images where realism meets neotraditional style - I love to combine bold and fine line work with gradients, contrasting tones, and intricate detail that gives the tattoo an almost 3D look.  It's important for me to create a design that will retain its high quality, definition and color for years to come.

I work by appointment only and ask that you read the information in my Tattoo and FAQs tabs before booking with me!  Please contact me at least a couple months in advance of when you'd like to book your session, since I schedule ahead and require time to draw your design!
