Apprenticed with Gary Beckerman at Ozark
in Ava Mo.
Retrained with Victor Tackett at The
Enchanted Dragon, Inc. Tucson, AZ.
Realistically, I could say that I have
been in training to be a tattoo artist since a very young age. First with
tracing over designs with tracing paper in pre-school during class activities,
then drawing since as far back as I can remember. At 17 I had constructed
tattoo machine, at 21 I had received my first professional tattoo machine as a
gift from my mother right down to trial and error tattooing on friends and
family’ thankfully no one was injured.
Something that had started off as a hobby
had eventually became a passion, in which I expressed no only myself but for
others to express themselves also. I am blessed to say that through all of the
trials and tribulations, I have been able to learn from a very talented group of
artist such as tattoo artist, pierces, Sand blasters and Glass blowers. I work
very hard every day to be the best I can be. And take my position very seriously
as I have come a long way to get here. Right now I have the pleasure of working
with Derek Dooley at the Enchanted Dragon Inc., on Grant and Columbus (Modern
where I continue to grow with many new inspirations. I love tattooing
black and gray, color large and small.
Thank you to all of those who have
supported and believe in me.
