I am not as serious as I seem.
I am more serious than you'd ever believe.
I am the Manifold & Multi-Faceted Artist
I am a professional tattoo artist by day and a Fine Art student by night. I started as a writer, played as an actor, became a creator, writer, letterer & editor of independent comics and earned my Photoshop Chops thru over a decade in the trenches. I forged myself into a tattooist and grew into a visual artist that is ever expanding mediums from pencil & paper, to painting, sculpture, welding and glass.
As a child I walked thru death's door and overcame near-crippling trauma and injury and as a man I earned the title Marine. I have walked the Dark and I have also seen the Light. I have been knocked down more times than I can count, and love has lifted me higher than I ever dreamed to aspire.
I have been the playboy and the fiancee.
I have been addicted and I have been shattered.
I have been reforged, recycled, reinterpreted and remade.
I have been the romantic and the rake,
the boy scout and the rogue,
the genius and the madman,
the visionary and the fool.
I walk between worlds and tread the edges of paths.
I will inspire your dreams and I will manifest your desires.
Passion & Art are all that I am...

Real Men do still exist, so please don't lose all hope in us...
Currently revaluating what that concept even is and what my previous conceptions were and how, or even if, they fit in with the new reality that I am in.
Oh, did I mention sex?
That most animals and children instantly adore me.
I am a phenomenal cuddler. I am the perfect nook for you to crawl into.
My laughter is infectious.
I am not what you think.
I recently concluded my first tempestuous romp with a certain Mr. Jack Kerouc...wow...I do believe that I love that man!

But if I had to say anything, it would be music. I don't think that life would be worth living if there wasn't any music...
The path to ego destruction and mind-kill.
The Eightfold Path.
The moment that is right NOW.
Father Coyote and all of his wonderful tricks!
Batman and all of his wonderful toys!
Examining how my overtly masculine personality meshes with my queer sexual philosophy and my creative androngynous psychology.
How to help make you think.
(And yes, that usage was on porpoise.)
Slinging drinks at the gay bar!
In the eyes

For I choose
to not believe
in those things seen,
But to perceive
thru those things
And my profile is hella long, which I'm sure you've gathered if you've actually read this far.
But if you just looked at my pics and thought I was cute, that could be acceptable as well. :)
By the way...
No I will not tattoo you for free.
No I will not trade sex for tattoo work.
Does that even need to be said?
