from Heart & Hand Tattoos

Tell us your story of how you became a full time tattoo artist?

I’ve always had a love for art as a kid, and from a young age I knew I wanted to be an artist, just never knew I would end up being a tattoo artist. Only when I was a lot older I learned about tattoos and instantly became fascinated by it.

When first starting out, which skill did you feel was the hardest to learn?

Line work. I struggled for such a long time trying to get my lining to be in check, mainly because I only had access to cheap tattoo supplies and equipment for the first couple years of tattooing, but hey I’m a better artist because of that.

What style of tattoo do you enjoy creating the most and why?

I love doing portrait work, it’s like a whole new experience every time. Having to capture a person’s character or personality from a photograph and make it into a tattoo is just the most satisfying thing for me.
