MEET THE ARTISTS
After my apprenticeship, I bounced around until I opened my studio in 2007, Pirate Tattoo in Western Maryland. In 2013 my family and I decided it was time for a change of scenery. We relocated to Jacksonville, North Carolina, and I have been a resident artist at Hardwire ever since. I enjoy working in all styles of tattoo, including, but not limited to Black & Grey, Color, Traditional, Japanese, and New School. My schedule is Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday via shop hours. Appointments are highly encouraged but I can accommodate walk-ins.
I started at Fast Freddy’s Superior Skin Art under the guidance of Wild Bill Debuc. Bill was mentored by Sailor Bill Killingsworth a legend in the Tattoo world, even to this day. I am honored to learn under these men , they taught me the in’s and out’s of tattooing and hustling. From there I moved back home to NC , then back down to Tallahasee FL where I worked at Dixieland Capitol City
Tattoo, where I decided as a young artist that I wanted to do whatever came through the door, all styles , I have never wanted to limit myself from being able to connect with my clients. I love doing portraits, Bio-mechanical, Japanese, old school tattoos, new school tattoos, tribal, Black and grey, Geo-metric and Color bomb tattoos, I tend to do a lot of military themed tats nowadays , being next to Camp Lejeune , and Camp Johnson, Marine corp bases, I live in Jacksonville with my wife Meghann who helps me with everything, and for that I am appreciative. I look forward to creating whatever you can come up with and doing it to the absolute best . I never scrimp on the products I use , only the best, quality tattoos take quality products. The standards I set for myself can be seen in the work I do.
I especially love to tattoo insects, snakes, and other animals, as well as skulls, flowers, and fantasy creatures. My preferred styles are Black and Gray, Neotraditional, Etching, American Traditional, and Dotwork.
