I started tattooing when I was almost 18 years old. As a kid, I watched my talented mother paint and draw on many occasions. I admired her in many ways, and soon learned to pick up a pencil. I'd read old tattoo magazines and become lost within them while I sat in my bedroom. Doing art had become an escape from reality and, being a dreamer, I always imagined my art would take me somewhere else.
I was told artists are only recognized and make money when they're dead. So I moved to Grande Prairie, Alberta, and began a four year apprenticeship with a family friend named Raz. I was nine when I got to watch him tattoo for the first time... I was hooked then as I am now.
I love to stay inspired and eager to work. Everything always comes back to tattooing for me, whether it's being artistic or standing up for myself. I love meeting new and interesting people. Tattoos have always helped me, if I can do the same for others by giving them something they'll love and can take with them forever then I know I'm doing what I'm meant to do.
It's my passion and it takes me to very cool places. I am based out of Grimshaw, Alberta, and I go on the road a lot. I specialize in many styles. I am not against doing small tattoos, I believe that every tattoo is important and special, just like my clients. I enjoy doing full color and lettering, as well as collaborating one-of-a-kind tattoos for my clients. I'm not Dead (P!nk).
Just living the dream.
