I started piercing in Tucson, Arizona back in 1993 and ultimately did my first tattoo 1/2/2002. Although I consider myself well rounded as an artist and able to tackle wild and elaborate projects (but will happily do a smaller piece for you), my favorite art genres are photorealism, trash polka, floral and fauna, wild color blasts, and the macabre. Mostly, I like custom tailoring unique designs and making good tattoos that last.

I'd really like to get into some more *large* scale portrait work. Quarter-sleeve+, up close, and detailed faces with stark contrasts. Big screen scenes from movies are a great example. I'm a big fan of color as well, but one of my favorite challenges is recreating a photo in someone's flesh. I'm happy to offer a reduced rate and prioritize those projects as best I can. There are many examples of past work in my Instagram feed if you dig through there.

I still appreciate jumping on a walk-in tattoo, but my calendar has stacked up and it's not currently an option for us. My consulting is 1-2 months out and my tattooing is around a year out.

Please feel free to email (best) me @ lunatictattoo@gmail.com with any questions that you may have. With my workload it may take a day or two for me to respond, so thanks for your patience!

There is no cost or obligation for a consultation, but a security deposit is required to set up an actual tattoo appointment. Thanks for looking!
