About Me

My interest in tattooing started in the 80s, greatly influenced by the punk/metal scene and bands. I met Mad Jack and Willie Perry at age 15 and started hanging out at Jack’s studio (Golden Dragon). Willie then opened Tropical Tattoo in Ormond Beach, FL in 1990 while I was doing a 4-year stint in the army. I would come home on leave and spend all my free time hanging out there. When I got out in 1994, I was offered an apprenticeship and started taking art classes at the college. I’ve been tattooing ever since.

I would like to thank Willie for giving me the opportunity to learn and work at Tropical Tattoo. Also Clay Baskett, Mad Jack, Charlie Subock and everyone I’ve worked with along the way.
