Describe yourself in 5 words or less.

Brutally honest & funny as hell.


What drew you into the world of tattooing? What inspired you?

I have been an artist my whole life and the world of art drew me in; the world is a gallery.


When did you get your first tattoo? What was it?

I was 12 years old. It was a cross on my hand.


Were you trained formally? If so, where?

I was trained formally through an apprenticeship; it was two years before I even touched a tattoo machine. I have a great respect for the industry from an old school standpoint.


Have you won any awards?

I am most award-winning tattoo artist in North Carolina. I have over 300 awards in my shop and have been published over 20 times.


What's your signature style?

Neo-Japanese, old school traditional.


What's your favorite tattoo that you've ever inked on someone?

I am currently working on a body suit as one complete tattoo; I am in the process of finishing this year.


Who do you think is your biggest competition on the show?

Shane O'Neill


What is the hardest part of being on Ink Master?

You can't make any mistakes. You must be perfect first time around.


What advice do you give to someone who's looking to get their first tattoo?

Most commonly people's first tattoo is letters. I tell them to really think about it. "Don't label the symbol." Tattoos are symbols and they represent you. Be careful on how you represent yourself.
