What made you want to become a Tattoo Artist?
I always wanted to be a tattoo artist. I was always good at drawing and people around me said I should try out tattooing. Ever since then the idea of becoming a tattoo artist stuck with me.

Where or who do you turn to for inspiration?
I get my inspiration from other artists and friends.

Tell us about your experience training as a Tattoo Artist? Who made the largest impact on your artistic progress?
The training aspect of becoming a tattoo artist was definitely a journey. I had to go through a lot of apprenticeships and find the right place, before I could start tattooing. One person that made a large impact on my artistic progress would be Master Shark.

How many Tattoos do you have & which is your favourite?
I have 5 tattoos, my favourite one would be the script on my left arm “Familia”.Family is very important to me so that’s my favourite tattoo for now.

What do you find yourself doing after a long day at the studio?
After a long day at the studio, I find myself stretching and looking back at the tattoo I have done for the day.

Do you have any mentors you look up to?
I look up to Master Shark and the team at Hon as they are always trying to help me reach my best potential.

How do you stay on top of new trends?
To be honest I don’t know if I am always following new trends. I mainly just focus on my work and do my best to improve and create more.

Do you have a favourite Tattoo Piece you worked on? If so, why does it stand out to you?
My favourite tattoo I worked on would be a Poseidon with a rose on the outer arm. This tattoo stands out a lot to me because it’s very detailed and I always wanted to tattoo a Poseidon and this was my first.

What advice would you give to an artist just starting out?
My advice to an artist starting out now would be to always work hard and not take any shortcuts. Also to be humble and focus on your grind.
