My apprenticeship was done under Brian Macauly at Traditions Tattoo in Imperial Beach. While there, I was surrounded by several talented artists (Bobby Flores, Chris Reed, Brian and Kristen Van Sant, Isaac QueZada, Edmar Ramirez…) whom were always there to share their knowledge, expertise, and wisdom of art and the craft of tattooing with me. From the push to the praise, to the constant dropping-of-the-hammer, that I frequently needed to point my big head in the right direction, these guys left a mark for sure!
Anyway, I’ve only got two years of tattooing under my belt, but am very much in love with the craft and am looking forward to learn and work alongside with Chuy and Jaime! I’m looking to do more neo-traditional work with a horror/sci-fi twist.
