He is out of northern Indiana. He hits the Detroit convention with Marvel Tattoo every year. He seems to be one of the better artists in my area(I've known of him for probably 8 years and I've seen probably 10 of his pieces). If you've got time or an opinion, the slideshow has 20 some pieces. I really like your work so an opinion of yours on his would be appreciated. I'm interested in black and grey more than color at the moment so if you see anything good or bad in his work let me know. Thanks man.

Thanks for the kind words man.

Ive never heard of him but his work is tight. I'd get tattooed from him. If you get a chance, go for it. If he's in Detroit when Im there this year I give him a shout. If you get anything from him, post it here, that'd be cool

I saw his name listed with a pretty solid group of names for the "stellar talent pool" on the convention floor for the Motor City Expo. Some of the names are Deano Cook, Tom Renshaw, Jay Wheeler, some Mario Bell fella, and Ron Meyers.

I've always liked what I saw that he did. I messed up probably 6-7 years ago when he had a small shop. I was friends with a kid he grew up with, he was doing work for friends for the cost of supplies plus tip. The shop he works out of is maybe 40 minutes away(sadly Detroit is only about 4 hours but I can't find the time to go).

I'm saving up for some work right now. When I get it done, I'll put it up for sure. I'm wanting to go big...time for a sleeve.
