I began my tattoo carrer in Decamber of 1994 at a small studio in South Lake Tahoe. I apprenticed under Zack Mueller. Seven month's later we relocated to Carson City and opened Distinct Ink where I still tattoo to this day. With 14 years of experience I feel that I am just starting to realize my potential and have a long way to go in this business. Each day is an exciting learning experience and I feel lucky to be part of such a wonderful industry.
One of the best things about this industry are the customers that we meet. Each client gives us the freedom to create works of art on their bodies while forming a special bond. Many customers will open up completely while in our chairs.
I enjoy listening to music while I work and if you want to talk about movies, I'll talk your ears off. I pride myself in making sure my clients feel as comfortable as possible while in my chair.
As an artist I try not to limit myself to a particular style and I feel very comfortable with most everything that clients might bring in to me to tattoo. Don't worry, I never take on anything that I don't think I can handle. I figure the day I stop tattooing is the day they pry my machine from my cold dead hand.
