I’ve gotten tattooed since I was sixteen years old and quickly became addicted to the art, expression, beauty, history, and subculture of tattooing. As an artist, tattooing is as natural for me, as breathing is, and so this journey has been many moons in the making… Join me, as I enter the world of learning traditional hand/stick and poke tattooing, the oldest body modification dating tens of thousands of years back into human history, and the oldest form of tattooing known to humanity.
