I may be the perfect artist for you: then again I may not. When you come to share space with me, it's more than just a tattoo. There is a connection that is made, I believe that you are first and foremost a spiritual being on a human journey. I will never look at you as just a "canvas" and honestly, that new media induced label makes my stomach turn a bit. It's my job to facilitate your idea into tattoo form, and I know it means a lot to you. People get tattooed for all reasons; whether it be to celebrate a milestone, morn a loss, a rebellious break from some social norms, the welcoming of a child or just because something was thought to be cool. I hope you're prepared to share with me. I believe life is meant to be experienced and discussed collectively. Know that when you are within my studio, it's a safe and Sacred Space. I'm grateful for you, to have chosen and allowed me to share that small snippet in time with you and your life. Thank you for sharing space with me.
I started my tattoo journey in winter of 2002 at a small walk-in shop in New Hope, PA. After a couple years there; I joined the Immortal Ink family, which I proudly called my home for 13 wonderful years. I am so grateful to the people who have inspired and helped me along the way: my fellow Immortal Ink artists, the clients who have become friends and the friends who have become family.
Following my heart and my creative path, I opened Sacred Space Tattoo Studio in Ottsville, Pa. in January of 2017; A private studio. Working by appointment Tuesday-Friday.
Through the years I have tried my hands at various tattoo styles. Honing skills and techniques that spoke to me on an artistic level. Being able to recognize my strengths, weaknesses and eventually phase out those styles that I felt I wouldn’t do any justice as a tattoo. My heart lives in color. Fun bold pieces, that have hints of little details… I have a creative mind with a lack of vices, so what I’m doing today may be completely different than what I’m doing next year…..
The amazing thing about the art of tattoo is that it’s ever evolving. New techniques, new artists pushing the limits of the skin. The world of tattooing hails artists that strive to master the simple yet clean bold pieces of traditional american to the super complicated structure of the asian body suit. Today some artists even treat skin like an extension of the canvases of old, making you question whether you are looking at an arm or a painting hanging in your favorite museum. One thing to keep in mind that with the world of tattooing getting so big, make sure that the art you want fits the artist you choose.
With that being said thank you for choosing me!
