My apprenticeship was nothing short of a gift. After being a regular customer at Artrageous since the fall of 2009, I started being a receptionist in 2015. In 2017 I was asked by Dave Theeke and Steve Wickert to become an apprentice. My journey started with a rigorous traditional tattoo apprenticeship that included studying the history of tattooing, proper sterilization, tattoo machine mechanical fundamentals, machine building and designing tattoos of all styles.
My style of tattooing is versatile. I was trained to take on anything that walks through the door, and there are styles that I’m still working on to perfect. I would like to strongly thank Dave Theeke, Steve Wickert, Eric Ebbole, Brady Buckman, Rob Jensen, and all the artists that worked with us in the past that sharpened my vision and appreciation of tattooing.
