I started tattooing in the mid early 90's. Not long after I started tattooing I started tinkering with machines, as most artist do.  Since I was a full time machinist and part time artist I decided i would put my machinist abilities to work to build a machines that would better fit my needs. At first I just sold to local artist and friends that I tattooed with and after a while I was having more and more people approach me about my machines so I started to produce more. Until finally in 2005 I opened my own machine shop. Dedicated to producing tattoo machines made from the finest materials available and held to the highest degree of tolerances. I am the inventor of the forward facing coil machine and also the originator of the magnetically driven rotary. Both of these machines where produced with my background of machining and engineering combined with my knowledge of what an artist needs in a machine.
