I am a 27 year old tattoo artist originally from Massachusetts, but have been living in Seattle for the last year. I am two years into tattooing, so I'm finally starting to make enough money to travel. As far as work goes, I tattoo a large female clientele and end up drawing many birds and flowers. My biggest influences artistically are Audubon and Walton Ford, I think their paintings are classic and so well done, and I strive to create things that beautiful. Previous to tattooing I was a veterinary radiology technician (I love animals) and a full time (broke) art school student. I have yet to travel outside of the continent, but I'm excited to do so as soon as possible!
I'm a very respectful house guest and currently live with 5 other people, so I think I've gotten the whole "be mindful of others" idea down. I'm pretty quiet by nature, but I enjoy good conversation and have a pretty sarcastic sense of humor... The Larry David tattoo on my arm is a good indication of that. I'm always looking for new restaurants to eat at and new food to try, although the strange and ugly creature they call a "geoduck" might be something I'll never try.
I read as much as I can in my spare time, and my favorite books/stories include Metamorphosis, The Jungle, The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch, Water For Elephants, Shutter Island (the book was much better than the movie), She's Come Undone, among others.
