Owner & Tattoo Artist
Ever since I was a small child, I’ve been an artist. All through school, I was that kid in class who was drawing instead of taking notes. Even back then I was drawing skulls, and monsters, naked women and grim reapers. Little did I know I was practicing for a career as a tattooist. At the young age of 17, I did my first tattoo.
From that humble beginning as an amateur tattooist, I worked my way into an apprenticeship in Virginia, and was taught the fine-line black and grey techniques that I am still perfecting to this day. I still specialize in those dark and scary images of my childhood, but I also enjoy doing life-like flowers, wildlife and portraits.
I have tattooed around the world and have won trophies at international tattoo conventions.
Now, I’m settled in Ukiah, and I love it here. Come see me any time at Accent Tattoo.
I took an interest in body piercing early when my friends and I started experimenting with putting permanent holes in each others’ ears in high school. Little did I know that a pass-time could become a career.
I attended the world renowned Fakir Body Piercing Intensive in 2005 and apprenticed under Accent Tattoo co-owner Adam Glotnis immediately afterwards. I attend the annual Association of Professional Piercers (APP) conference to further advance my education and keep up on new techniques and concerns in the industry. I perform all types of piercings including (but not limited to) surface anchors, surface piercings, ear projects, male and female genitals, and all of the more known body piercings. I am always patient and knowledgeable, so call or come by to schedule your next piercing!
