    Hello everyone. I got my first tattoo when I was 18 back in 1990 when I was in the United States Marine Corps. It was a little shop in Millington, Tenneseee called Mouses. It was my official Marine Corps tat and although it is faded I still wear it proudly on my left shoulder. After that first one I was hooked and acquired 8 more over the years. If I could afford it I’d have both arms sleeved. Anyway, I have always been a good artist and since I love tattoos the only logical decision was to attempt to become a tattoo artist. Of course every time I considered it over the years something managed to push it to the back burner. I have a lot of friends and family who have been wanting me to give it a shot for some time now so I decided to finally take a look into it. I currently live in Western New York where I work at SUNY Fredonia and go to school part time at Empire State where I am 2 semesters away from getting my Bachelor of Arts degree. I’ve noticed that the beginner kits have gotten cheaper from the last time I looked into them so I figured it might be a good time to get serious about this.

    Welcome!
    Be careful when buying kits as they try to get your attention offering flashy, or many machines. You’re best to get a good quality kit–IE the 190$ Hildbrant one–or build one yourself.
