Q1. Where did you get your first tattoo and do you know by who?

A. I got my first tattoo my Oliver Peck when I was still in high school. It is a heart in flames on my leg.

Q2. What was going through your mind when you got your first tattoo?

A. Haha. I was thinking oh shit my parents are gonna be so pissed.  Oh and "this hurts!"

Q3. Is there a meaning behind your first tattoo and what is it if you care to share?

A. Well I really don't have meaning behind all my tattoo's, but looking back I guess subconsciously I picked one to symbolize hard times growing up... I know boo I hear a violin?

Q4. What is your favorite tattoo, where is it and why?

A. Well I love them all, but my newest piece by Erik Inclan is by far the most meaningful. Its for my daughter that passed a few years ago. He captured it perfect.. thanks Erik!

Q5. What advice can you give people who are looking to get ink for the first time?

A. Well now a days tattoo's are so common and its a lot more excepted. Because of this people don't really care what they get anymore and then regret it later. I say don't stress about it and enjoy the experience. Pick something that stands the tests of time. You will be hooked. watch out!

Q6. What is your inspiration behind your body art?

A. Beauty!!! I look at woman with tattoos and see such sensuality in it. It makes  a beautiful woman untouchable.

Q7. What would you say was your most memorable piece getting?

A.  My temple skull on arm. Lets just say a lamp, a stool, cigarettes and an old house. That's all im saying. Rough just rough.

Q8. Do you have any new ideas for any more work lined up?

A. Oh man, do I ever. I have to finish my sleeves, and then work my way down, its such a long process. One day I'll be done....naaaaaahhhhhh!


Q9. Who was your favorite artist that has tattooed you? Plus what did they do.

A. Well that's tough, I love them all for different reasons. They all get props in my book.

Q10. Do you like staying with one artist or do you like trying to go to new artist each time?

A. Not every time, but I like to get the best of them all. I  like to have different pieces from different artist..kinda like a gallery.

Q11. Do you believe tattoos are addictive? Why do you like getting tattooed?

A.  I truly, truly do! Its something that's hard to explain unless you have one. Getting tattooed to me is a big stress reliever. It makes me have to relax and focus, and boy do I need that if you couldn't tell.

Q12. When would you say you like getting tattooed the most is it at a certain time in your life or when you get that itch to get one done.

A. Both. Like I said when im under stress, or to mark a certain moment. Otherwise its more like......are u bored wanna tattoo me?

Q13. Any additional comments?

A.  mmmmmmmmmmm..not at this present time, but I'll get back to ya!
