It's been 10 great years tattooing in Tucson. Looking forward to the next 10. Susan and I will be using this blog to stay better connected to all of the good friends and wonderful customers we have found along the way.

What are monochromatic tattoos? Mono = 1. Chromatic refers to color. So monochromatic tattoos are tattoos done with one color. Most generally you see these done in black. But black is not the only option. Recently I did this arm piece all in red. I like how it turned out and so does Karina.
I started drawing at an age much too young to remember. Not long after, I discovered paint. I knew from that moment what I wanted to do with with my life.Twenty or more years after that while working on an art degree at Rose State University I picked up a tattoo machine for the first time. A few twists and turns of life later and I found myself as apprentice to Don Eaker , a true icon of American tattooing. He was president of National Tattoo Club at the time and I had no idea what a unique opportunity I had just been handed.
It has been a long road of thirty two years in the tattoo world. Tattooing has been very good to me.I have raised five kids along the way and continued in school.
I hope by limiting my tattooing to 'by appointment only' and to one tattoo session a day I can provide my customers with the best work of my career and a quiet and uninterrupted session.
