I have been tattooing since 2001 and enjoy all styles of tattooing. Tattooing for me is a passion, an outlet for my inner visions. I've always been drawn to art in many forms, excelling in art class probably better than any other class. Nowadays, I certainly find myself appreciating other artist's skills & abilities as well. As any type of artist, you should never stop the yearn to continue learning, & there's much we can all learn from each other. Other artist's work should uplift you to keep developing your own skills, & inspire you to keep an open mind to different techniques & styles. Learning & honing your abilities in what you do should be a lifelong process, never closing your mind & deciding what is art; there is always something new & mindblowing to find & appreciate.
