Ive always been heavily influenced by the timeless look of the traditional japanese tattooing. It has such strong imagery, smooth flowing backgrounds, and stands alone by itself. I would say that i am not a traditional japanese tattooer, but i like to take the themes, imagery, and over all style, to help tell a story with the designs i make. I would love to do a lot more of this.
Black and gray styled tattooing is something i really enjoy doing. It can have so many different ways it can go. I truly believe that there are times when you just cant get the same affect from color. The rich tones, the soft shading, the crisp contrast, it just has a look of class to it that will never go out of style.
I am very proud and honored to say that my machines are now available for purchase exclusively through
