BAW: What made you want to become a Tattoo Artist?

Artist: I like to draw. I first tattooed myself when I was 13 (covered now) . I got into the music business and never gave tattooing a second thought. Years later, a friend wanted me to tattoo him. I didn't know what I was doing-I got the official biker lessons- here's the ink and machines go for it!! Any how the tattoo came out great and I've been bettering myself ever since.


BAW: Who are your influences?

Artist: I like Boris Vallejo and Olivia as far as artwork is concerned. 


BAW: What is your favorite style of work?

Artist: I dig old school - but then again I like anything that's done well


BAW: Tell us about your first Tattoo Inkspierence?

Artist: The first guy I inked was a friend of mine. It was an eagle. I had no Idea what I was doing and I was scared to death. He was a Vietnam vet and kind of scary- I didn't want to be the one to screw up his tat. It came out fine so he didn't kill me.


BAW: What is your favorite piece you own?


 Artist: It's a toss up between my angel of death forearm piece, or my Frankenstein monster bicep.



BAW: What is your most memorable Tattoo given and why?

Artist: I did a Marilyn Monroe portrait . It was my first portrait and it was really good. I think it made me realize I could do this for a living.


BAW: Is there a part of the body you won't Tattoo and why?

Artist: I don't have an answer for that


BAW: How do you feel about female Tattoo Artists?

Artist: That depends on who we're talking about. Most of the Female artists I've met are really cool- and talented artists. A lot of guys down here in the south think men are better than women - but that's a load of crap. Most of the girls will give advice when you're just starting out. All you get from the guys is an attitude. 


BAW: Do you support supply co. that sells to the public?

Artist: yea


BAW: Do you feel there now should be mandatory schooling for soon to be tattoo artists?

Artist: I think there should be more schools available - then talk about being mandatory


BAW: Do you feel Tattooing has changed over the years, and if so why?

Artist: No, it's still done the same way


BAW: Do you think it is important to do as many conventions and shows as possible?

Artist: I don't think I've reached that level just yet


BAW: What advise can you give to someone who is starting or looking to get into the tattoo business?

Artist: Save your money for an apprenticeship - it's a long haul when you start to freelance. No one will hire you unless you have shop experience.


BAW: What could you say to someone who has had a bad first Inkspierence?

Artist: Find a good cover up artist
