I Have Been Tattooing Professionally Since 2008, After Completing A Year Long Apprenticeship. I Apprenticed Under The Talented Crew At Seven Deuce Tattoo In Federal Way, WA, But Accredit Most Of My Knowledge Of Tattooing And The Tattoo Industry To Dave Lue Who Currently Tattoos Out Of Count's Tattoo In My Hometown Of Las Vegas, NV.
Early In My Career, I Knew That I Wanted To Focus On Realism And Work Toward Becoming A Portrait Artist. I Have Always Extremely Admired Realistic Tattoos And Art, And Wanted To Learn As Much As I Could About The Techniques And Application Of Portraits And Photo-Realism In Tattooing. Most Of The Influences In My Work Are From Portrait And Realism Artists Such As Bob Tyrell, Kyle Cotterman, Joshua Carlton, Victor Portugal, Andy Engal, Mike Devries, Nikko Hurtado, Cecil Porter, And Roman Abrega. While There Are Endless Artists That I Look Up To And Admire, These Are A Few Off The Top Of My Head That I Have Followed Since My Apprenticeship.
Although, Still Fairly New To The Tattoo Industry, I Completed My First Attempt At Photo-Realism After Only Six Months Of Tattooing Full-Time. By My Standards Today, It Definitely Wasn't Near My Best Work By Far, But It Proved To Me That Realism Was Going To Be My Specialty. I Now Pride Myself In My Ability To Re-Create An Extremely Close Duplicate Of An Actual Photograph, Whether It Be A Person, Animal, Object, Etc., On The Skin And Capture An Unmistakable Likeness To My Reference, While Adding My Own Personal Artistic Touch, To Make It A Complete And Beautiful Tattoo.
