  1. What made you want to be a tattoo artist or when did you decide?

    I wanted to find a form of art that could be taken all around the world and would let me work on organic mediums. I loved working with bones and wood but it was very limiting.


  1. What’s your background? How did you get started? 

    I have been a self taught artist in multiple mediums for over 10 years. I began designing sacred geometry in high school and began experimenting with other mediums for these designs (wood burning and bone burning)

  1. What styles do you specialize in or prefer to work on? 

    I love minimalist, engraving, and geometric/mandala styles!

  1. What are your tattoo goals? What kind of pieces do you love working on? What would you love to do more of?

    My goal is to travel across the US while tattooing as I visit National Parks! I love designing skeletons, insects, and plants in a vintage style. I want to do more creepy and cute pieces or geometric pieces that compliment natural body shapes

  1. Are there any tattoo requests you turn down?  

    I do not tattoo realism or color pieces.

  1. How do you work with your clients? 

    I book with clients on Instagram and will walk them through my booking and designing process. I like to keep communication open and clear during the tattoo appointment and want my clients to feel comfortable to voice any concerns (design adjustments, sizing options, movement of stencil).

  1. Who’s your ideal client?  

    A client who has clear communication with me and works with me on the design process! I love my diverse clientele who want unique custom pieces.

  1. Do you have any advice for the first-timer? 

    Read my “how to book” post on my Instagram profile and feel free to message me about any questions/concerns! I like to make the process clear to lessen any anxieties my clients may have about getting their first tattoo.

  1. What makes Diego Tattoo Studio the best tattoo shop in San Diego? 

    This studio is full of unique and welcoming artists! It has the best shop environment I have ever been in. My clients consistently comment on how unique this shop is compared to others they have gone to. I also love that everyone here is respectful to all people who come here no matter their orientation, identity, and beliefs.

  1. What’s your favorite Local San Diego destination? 

    All the mountains! Im a bit of a hermit outside of tattooing and wander trails all across San Diego when Im not working.
