I got started in tattooing in 2005. I walked past a tattoo shop on my way to high school everyday in my hometown of Glens Falls, New York. I started to have a deeper interest in tattooing, and, having a background in art from a young age, I walked into Unique Arts to get my career started. Although I didn’t know at the time, it grew into a great love for this art form that literally incorporates every aspect of art I’ve learned over the years. Now that my primary form of art is on skin I still love putting brush to paper with watercolor and working in a digital format on an iPad. I left New York chasing sunshine and less snow and that’s what lead me to Myrtle Beach. I have found my dream job here at Elite Ink Tattoos. My fellow artists and I work diligently to bring to life your ideas to their fullest potential. Working side by side with the artists here have helped my artwork go to the next level and it continues to grow with every piece of art I do. When I’m not working I’m spending time with my beautiful family, making wonderful memories together. Having them supporting me in every step of the way bring me great pride and joy. All of this shows in my work and makes me happy to deliver you the best I can to every client that comes in Elite Ink Tattoos.
