I did my first tattoo in 1979 and began tattooing full-time in 1984. In 1989, I co-founded Avalon Tattoo in Pacific Beach, San Diego. Eight years later, I opened Avalon Tattoo 2 in North Park,San Diego, where I have been working since.

I particularly enjoy doing custom work and Japanese style tattooing, along with portraits, animals, flowers, and other fun stuff. I have always felt it is important to be versatile as a tattoo artist. Trying to perfect a variety of different tattoo styles and art has kept me interested in the field.

In addition to custom tattooing, I also do a variety of commissioned artwork including paintings, t-shirt designs, business cards, CD covers, band or event posters, etc. Contact me with your request and we will take it from there.

I hope you enjoy the website and feel free to contact me with any questions or comments.
