“When I make any kind of art for fun or commission work I tend to get inspired by pop culture or things that I love in general. I like when I see those influences in other people’s work.”
1. How long have you been tattooing and what sparked your interest in the art form?
My dad is an old biker so I grew up around tattoos and seeing people get tattooed in motorcycle clubhouses and kitchens and places like that. I was interested but it seemed kind of gross at the same time. Then as I got older I would hang out at book shops and look at magazines and books about the history of tattoos and I saw that there was a lot more to it than the biker tattoos that I was used to seeing.
