December 2016- A change of direction

As many of you noticed, I have decided to move on from the shop I had been at for many years. I am now located at Permanent Addictions Tattoo in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Many years ago, I helped grow Permanent Addictions and its reputation. After 6 years I decided it was time to "come home". I am extremely lucky to be able to do tattoos with someone who taught me a good portion of what I know today as a tattoer. Sioux Falls will always be my home, and I wanted to take a moment to thank all of my clients for allowing me to make a living doing permanent art on you all. 

I will continue to offer my services by appointment, but also am happy to take walk-ins anytime I am not busy with a scheduled client. Walk-in tattoos are important to me because I like the challenge of being kept on my toes and not "knowing what is next". If you are interested in my art either as a tattoo or a painting, please click on the "inquiries" tab above and fill out the attached form. 

You can also now keep up with me via but I will be updating this page with tattoos and paintings a little more often. 2017 is looking to be an inspiring year. I would love to start a new tattoo for you. I am more than happy to make you a tattoo design from scratch, or to work with you on a design that you already have. I plan on keeping up monthly with this little blog, including a page of hand painted flash that will be the "specials" for the month. Permanent Addictions Tattoos will also be featuring weekly and monthly specials to keep things interesting! I plan on continuing to grow as a tattooer, learning all that I can. I am currently planning a few guest spots in the region and also plan on having a few friends come to guest at Permanent Addictions. I will keep you all up to date so please visit back every now and again! 

I hope you all have a very happy holiday season and a happy and safe new years! Be kind to one another.
