WHO ARE SOME OF YOUR CREATIVE INFLUENCES:
One of the first influences as far as tattoos go is The show and cast from the Miami ink show. That was really my first introduction to the tattoo world. Then I found artists like Miya Bailey, Ryan (9 mag), Spray Tattoo from Russia 🇷🇺 and more.

WHAT INSPIRES ME AS AN ARTIST:

Everyday stuff really. It could be something as little as seein the sunset drivin across the bridge. I could hear a random quote that’ll work good as a tattoo then I’m sketching out letters or drawing something inspired by

WHO INSPIRES ME:

Other artists and being around them, wether it’s general convo or goin over designs. Working with dope artists always pushes me to do better and be betterv

HOW HAS LIFE’S EXPERIENCES AFFECTED YOUR ARTWORK AND YOUR DEVELOPMENT AS A TATTOO ARTIST?

In a lot of terms life slowed me down a lot, I think every artist or creative feel like they should be in a better spot or further along. I feel like I’d be a ink master level artist by now lol

HAVE YOU TAKEN YOUR TECHNICAL SKILLS TO ANY CITIES OTHER THAN YOUR OWN?

Hell yea but all of em was in the Midwest so I don’t count em 🤣
