I've been tattooing professionally since 1998. I apprenticed in 1996 in Jacksonville, Fl (where I lived for 30 years). I've worked in shops up and down the east coast, from Florida to Boston, and through fate I ended up in Harrisonburg, VA. I have been at Painted Lady Tattoos for 16 years, and I have built up an amazingly diverse clientele here ranging from all walks of life. I am so grateful for everyone's continued patronage over the years that I've been here, and look forward to meeting new ones too!

It is my goal to be versatile in many styles of tattooing, and not trying to limit myself to just one. But I have to admit that black and gray is my favorite style. I really enjoy doing stuff with lots of detail, and I'm always up for a good challenge!

I try to be as gentle as possible through the tattooing process, as I know these things sometimes hurt. You will be treated with kindness and respect by me, no matter what the tattoo is - I understand that a lot of thought and consideration goes into your tattoo of choice, and I am more than happy to work with you on your ideas. The customer is my primary focus, and I want to be able to provide the best service possible - as this is not about me, it's about YOU and what YOU want. So check out my work and come by and see me!
