I have always had a passion for art, architecture, design. My love for creating things and working with my hands is deeply rooted. In 2011, I was offered the opportunity to learn to tattoo. I eagerly accepted and never looked back. I enjoy tattooing in black and gray as well as color. Blackwork with crisp lines and different textures is a favorite. I particularly love tattooing plants, animals, occult and magic symbols, and geometric designs. Outside of the studio, I enjoy painting, wood burning, and sewing, as well as, hiking, riding bikes, and spending time with my family.

My love for tattooing began in my teens and I knew that I wanted to pursue tattooing, as a career, from a young age. Art and drawing has always been a passion of mine. I have been tattooing since 2015. Originally from Florida, I moved to North Carolina in 2017 and have been at Ascension Tattoo since that time. My favorite style to tattoo is new school, cartoons, anime, and neo traditional. When I’m not tattooing or making other art, I enjoy video games, watching anime and hanging out with my family and friends.

I first developed an interest in art my freshman year of high school, taking every art class that I could. I attended Appalachian State University for Studio Art, and shortly after I was offered a tattoo apprenticeship. I’ve been tattooing since 2012, working in various shops throughout North Carolina. I love doing tattoos that are more detailed and realistic – both in full color and black and grey. I especially enjoy tattooing flowers and animals. In my spare time, I like to paint as well as explore other artistic mediums.

My desire to create art and environments to encourage artistic individuality has grown and flourished through nomadic living and a thirst to learn more. For 6 years I studied 3D sculpture and followed that passion in 2012 to the pottery capitol of the country: North Carolina. Studio employment and instructing both groups and private classes continued that evolution of my artistic career and in 2017 I began working for Ascension. Through my work I combine my passion for art and desire to establish connections with clients to make their dreams a living piece of art to carry with them every day. In my personal life I enjoy creating larger scale installation art, camping, gardening, and loving my animal babies.

Art has been a constant passion throughout my life. My earliest love for art began with animation and has now grown into a deep fascination, respect, and admiration for art in every medium. As a kid, I knew I wanted to pursue a career in the art world, and by my teenage years I realized that meant tattooing.  In 2013, I landed an apprenticeship and began devoting my time to tattooing. It seemed a perfect mix of my desire to work in an artistic field, while also creating an enjoyable and memorable experience for people. I particularly enjoy drawing in a new school style, in both color and black & grey. Tattooing has given me the opportunity to express myself, and honor those ideas and constructs that inspire me. Outside of work, I enjoy and draw inspiration from anything involving anime, manga, comics, video games, and building projects.
