Born, Traverse City, Mi. Dec. 18, 1954. I grew up between Detroit, Chicago, and Southern California. I became interested in Tattoos in 1969 and began pokeing them in by hand. I joined the Marine Corp’s in 1971 and got out in 1973. I started an apprenticeship in 1974 in So. Cal. with Doc Dog, and never turned back. I’ve Tattooed all over the world the last 30 yrs.
