"I got my first professional tattoo in 1980 in Houston Texas. After that I got several more as the years went by. I got clean August 1986 and covered up all my evil ink. I started tattooing as an apprentice in January 1990. I worked for him for 12 1/2 years and in July 2002 I started working at Forever Art. I have the opportunity to work with many people that are skilled in the art of tattooing. I am grateful to make a living as a tattoo artist and thank all the people who let me tattoo them."
