I’ve been tattooing for 25 years, you’re in good hands!
Although I reside in Maryland now, I am originally from New York, and spent the first half of my career working in a busy street shop in New Jersey for Diane Farris at Powerhouse Tattoo. The shop was extremely small and extremely popular~ buzzing with walk-ins all day and night.It was there that I learned old school ethics and how to be strong and self reliant in a fast paced cramped environment without a counter-person.
Diane had apprenticed with the famous tattooer, Spider Webb, and because of her, I was able to meet (and get tattooed by) many of the historical figures of the NY Tattoo industry such as Mike Perfetto, the Moskowitz brothers, Coney Island Freddie, Tony Polito, Philadelphia Eddie, and the list goes on. Thanks Diane!
After I left NJ, I moved to Maryland and spent 11 years working with Vinnie Myers and a rotating crew at Little Vinnie’s Tattoos in Finksburg including tattoo legends such as Dave Waugh , Uncle Pauly, and Aaron Cain.
