Since I was 13 years old I have been obsessed with tattooing. When I came of age I apprenticed with some local artists for a short period of time before I enlisted in the Army. There I continued to hone my tattooing skills while stationed in Europe. After living abroad for 4 years I received my honorable discharge from the military and returned to the Pacific Northwest. There I worked in a few local shops in Vancouver and Portland.”

I opened my own shop, Vertigo Gallery Tattoo, in 2002. I have spent the past 20 + years developing my own style based in biomech/bioorganic and neotraditional tattooing. When I’m not tattooing I enjoy tattoo machine developing/ building and oil painting. Request an appointment ›
