Owner of Black Pearl Tattoo Inc. in Grand Junction, CO. I started tattooing as an apprentice under Matt Jones in 2002. Four years later I incorporated under the name Black Pearl Tattoo Inc. After a few years of working with others in the industry I decided to open a small shop here in Grand Junction in 2010. I’ve been fortunate enough to tattoo and grow as an artist here in Colorado for the past 11 years. I’m open to translating many different styles of art to skin but would have to say I naturally have more of an illustrative style of artwork. Living here in Colorado, I’ve had the opportunity to enjoy some killer outdoor activities outside the shop (skiing, biking, camping- just being in the mountains is pretty sweet!).
My goal and mission as far as the future goes is pretty simple...continue to learn and grow artistically in as many mediums as possible and enjoy the company of others I come into contact with as well as the environment I happen to live in.
