20 Year Anniversary!
September 28th marks my 20 year anniversary in the tattoo industry! I am so grateful to be able to make a career out of something I'm passionate about. But I'm especially grateful for the thousands of people I have tattooed - without you none of this would have been possible. So thank you everyone for all your support and patronage over the past 20 years! And special thanks to those who helped me in my early years, who never gave up on me, and encouraged me to follow my dream! It's been a wild ride for sure!

So much has happened in the past few months, We've had a few personnel changes at the shop. Unfortunately, Alex is going on to better things, and my apprentice, Jacob, is finally back with me full time. And we got a new artist recently, so hopefully things won't be hectic.
Thank you to all who have been patient and understanding during some of the chaos and scheduling conflicts. I have always hated running behind, but sometimes enough time is not allotted for the appointment, or last minute changes to the design, or even one person being late can hold things up. Hopefully things will work out and this won't be an issue any longer. Believe me, I'm not fond of staying til after midnight either!
I've been booked up pretty much lately, but I still have open slots here in the next few weeks! So if you can't get in right now, we'll try to get you in as soon as possible! If you want a Friday or Saturday appointment, try and book the slot as soon as you can, as those times fill up fast. And if you come in for a consultation, please bring printed references with you instead of cell phone pics. Its hard to print a pic off a cell phone, and we can't give an accurate price unless we know the size, details, and whatnot.
Thanks again to all those who have been understanding and patient with me over the past 2 years. You guys are awesome!!

Wow.. what a year this has been! I just wanted to take this time to thank all of you for being understanding and supportive of me while I have been dealing with the intestinal disorder that has plagued me this past year, and being patient with me during my recuperation after my surgery. I sincerely apologize for having to reschedule so many appointments due to hospitalizations, and I cannot express my appreciation enough to those of you who have stuck by me. Thank you so much! I've also updated some of my galleries, so check out some new work I've posted!
On a much lighter note, last month I hit the big 4-0h!! i must give special thanks to my family for gathering together for the first time in years to help me celebrate this milestone birthday! I love you guys!!!!
Oh - and again, please send all emails to firstname.lastname@example.org, and not through this website. I don't get the chance to check this site as often as i would like.
10/15/09 ---------My recent illness...
As some of you may have known, I had been sick on and off for the past few months, and unfortunately had to reschedule several of you due to that. (I also had to cancel my vacation to Florida, which didn't make me very happy)
Well, after a 6 day stay at RMH I have finally learned what was making me so sick, and with the help of all the great doctors that have been treating me for my condition, I am feeling better now than I have in a long time!
Thanks again to all of you that have been understanding and patient with me during this ordeal. I couldn't have done it without you!
