Thank you for taking the time to look through my bio. Let’s dive right in! I’ve lived in Portland for 5 years now and I absolutely love this city!!!
I learned the art of tattooing by apprenticing under Rick Barnett, a ridiculously amazing artist and owner of Fine Ink Studios in Orlando,FL. (Thank you Rick, I am truly grateful). I was introduced to fine art through oil painting, wild life sketching and still life drawing before I could even begin to talk about tattooing. This allowed me to understand the sacred traditions that can only be passed down from artist to artist, the same sacred traditions have allowed me to grow into the artist that I am today. I’ve been tattooing for 10 years now. I’ve learned what draws me to tattooing the most is making new friends and meaningful connections through this sacred art. Tattooing has led me to Portland where I plan to stay.
Whether you’re a new client or an existing one, I welcome you. Thank you for reading a bit about your new artist and hope to see you soon!!!
