I have a sardonic sense of humor and an acerbic tongue.
I am a fountain of random facts and useless knowledge.
I love mythology, folklore, and fairytales.
I have a fat ass puggle named Meatball 🍝🐶🍝
I began every sentence with "I".
Opening my first tattoo shop this Spring
Tattooing around the world (7 countries so far!)
Stabbing people with needles. IG: he_draws
Stretched lobes, currently 3/4"
When I'm at my tattoo shop it's usually the (current) lack of visible tattoos.
Anything by H.P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, and Edgar Allen Poe
Hemlock Grove (I illustrated the cover, so there might be a slight bias here)
Lord Of The Rings
Scott Pilgrim VS The World
Art School Confidential
Lord of the Rings trilogy
any and all Monty Python
James and the Giant Peach
Anchorman (don't judge me)
The Nightmare Before Christmas (it sparked my interest in art as a child)
Ren & Stimpy
Sons of Anarchy
Game of Thrones
Jersey Shore (I see it as a wildlife documentary)
Metal. And lots of it. Folk metal, viking metal, pirate metal, power metal, black metal, death metal, thrash metal, etc.
I also love classical, opera, classic rock, nerdcore, and hip-hop. There's a handful of country songs that I can stomach, but only a handful.
meat, pasta, hot sauce, Ben & Jerry's, hummus, a myriad of cheeses, mangos, granola, beer (porters and stouts mostly)
I don't really do seafood or vegetables. I'm aware of how detrimental to my health this is.

Where tattooing will take me
A good chunk of my vocabulary comes from playing Magic: the Gathering. One of my life goals is to illustrate a card or two for that game.
Gene Belcher is my spirit animal.
When I'm walking the streets at night, I enjoy looking into lit up apartment windows, especially in fancy schmancy neighborhoods.
I'm utter shit at sports.
You (and others) would consider yourself to be intelligent, enjoy foul humor, are capable of deep conversation, love the visual arts, would like to accompany me to gallery openings to eves-drop on befuddled patrons, and can tolerate listening to (or better yet enjoy) heavy metal. That about sums it up.
Also, I've never been to an opera before and have been dying to go see The Ring of the Nibelungs at the Metropolitan Opera, but holy shit is it expensive.
One final word of warning: My career as a tattooer comes first and foremost at this point in my life. This is the kind of job where you reap what you sow. Most of my free time is spent preparing my designs, leaving not a whole lot of time for dating/relationships. This has caused issues with people that I've met here in the past, hence the disclaimer. Please be aware of and cool with that.
