Explain your defining moment when you knew that this was the profession for you?

Waking up excited to go to work was a pretty good indicator that I had made the right decision! I enjoy every aspect of what I do, and though it is tough at times and I work long hours and take my work home with me in the form of designs, there’s nothing else I would rather be doing.

How do you like to make sure you keep progressing as an artist?

I have always held myself to a very high standard since school and my extra mural pursuits, and that trend has continued into my career. It helps to look to more experienced artists than myself for inspiration and guidance, and if I can compare my work to theirs I can find little things that I can improve on for the next Tattoo.

What style of tattoo do you enjoy creating the most? 

I absolutely love doing Floral tattoos, in a fine-line semi illustrative style!
