About MeI am a full time artist/tattooer at Good Luck Tattoo in Santa Cruz. I have been tattooing for 7 years and doing art for as long as i can remember. I enjoy painting pin ups, fantasy, tattoo stuff etc. primarily Painting in Liquid water color, oils, or ebony pencil. I have trouble finding right models to paint. Hopefully I can find some folks to network with on these projects, especially finding good models for my pin up paintings.
As far as models go, I definitely enjoy curvier girls. Nothing against skinny gals, Just find those figures more dynamic. I look really hard for a model that has something unique about their look. I dont exactly know what that means but i know it when i see it haha.
I grew up in west seattle. Started hanging around tattoo shops at 16. When I was in college at CWU i took on an apprenticeship. Which was abbreviated by management's legal excursions. I opened a studio in the town that i ran for 3 year. After graduation I traveled to glasgow scotland where i worked at custom inc.
My goals are to become an extremely versatile artist. Ive found that all sorts of mediums tend to be beneficial to the others. Id like to do some traveling in the next couple years. But itd be nice to stay based in Santa Cruz. I want to keep my art available for everybody. I dont believe art is something that should be dead hanging on a gallery wall. It should be part of everyday life.
