I believe the art of tattooing is no different than that of the classic fine arts of painting, sculpting, music, ballet, opera, theater, wine making, culinary excellence and the like. Each process demands discipline and a dedication to excellence by the crafter.
The artisan must be educated and knowledgeable in all aspects of his craft; taking lessons from the masters who preceded him. Materials and conditions must be of the highest quality and patience is most definitely a virtue. A sensitivity to the clients personal tastes and an innate ability to translate their needs into a fine work of art is essential in creating what would be considered a thing of beauty.
If you are a lover of the fine arts, I invite you to peruse the gallery and contemplate the coming of your very own personal Masterpiece.
