My Work

So....I am a tattooist. The majority of people find it odd that I fly fish, tie flies and tattoo. The connection between the two seems natural and fitting for me. I think it's more the art then anything that connects the two, tattooing being my chosen field in the arts. I tattoo by evening and tie flies by morning when the weather is not cooperating...otherwise you will see me standing in a river with my yak waving a stick tossing bugs. That's how I role. Tattooing has been my livelihood for the last seven years. It's the most rewarding, frustrating, aggravating, fun, belly laughing, bbq-ing, stressful, time consuming, rocking job I have ever done...especially in the arts. Here's a sampling of some of my favorite pieces over the last few years......Enjoy...

  3. I don't have any tattoos but that doesn't mean I can't recognize talent. Those are outstanding.

    One question: if there is such a thing, then what is the most common "theme" (e.g. family members being honored, philosophy of life, etc.)?

  8. Fantastic work. I have odd ends of the spectrum of loves as well. I sing in the punk rock band Pegboy out of chicago for many years, and like you, also like to spend all of my spare time in a trout stream. People don't believe you can have a passion for both!!! Thats what keeps me sane!!

  9. thanks guys...I would do more fly fishing tattoos if people around here were into them...As far as themes, I would say at this point in tattooing, anything is fair game. I tattoo all sorts of imagery...Thanks for checking it all out...
