Welcome and thank you for checking me out! I have been practicing the art of tattoo since 1999. In November 2003, I made the decision to open my own studio which became Mandrake Tattoo. In 2015, I moved to New Hampshire and made the decision to open a private tattoo/art studio here in Concord.
I have a masters degree in art from the University of Iowa where I also taught sculpture and figure modeling. My work in sculpture has been published internationally and my work in tattoo art has also been published in International Tattoo Art Magazine.
I find the art form of tattoo the most challenging and rewarding of any artistic medium. I am truly honored to do this work for my clients because it allows me to create fantastic imagery for them that they will wear and enjoy for a lifetime.
I work with my clients in a variety of styles. There are certain styles of work that I excel in and encourage clients to view my portfolio to see if what I offer is what they are looking for. A large majority of the work I do is custom nature themes and patterns. I work equally in black and grey as well as color. I recognize that watercolor styles are the latest rage right now however I have concerns about it aging properly therefore I do not work in that style.
Due to my busy schedule, I am only available by appointment and have a tendency to book in advance. Please do not let this deter you as I am always looking for unique new projects. If you are interested in working with me please take a moment and fill out the intake form under the scheduling an appointment tab above.
I will contact you as soon as my schedule allows and depending on the complexity of the project we will schedule a consultation via email or in person.
I would like everyone to know that I truly love what I do and I enjoy and am grateful to all my clients.
Thank you all for checking out my work and I hope to be able to work with you on your projects.
