“I believe that traditionally, a tattoo design is meant to have longevity. I am always aware that a design has to withstand aging, so the details should be done well enough that the piece will stay strong through the test of time.”

Thank you for checking out Bearcat Tattoo. I’m incredibly proud of our team here. Each of our artist offers a different perspective and artistic style, which makes Bearcat well versed in our creativity.
My personal style is deeply influenced by Japanese art, along with ornamental and adorned creations. My work tends to fall in the ornate Japanese/neo-traditional category, but I draw inspiration from many different styles. I’m very open to anything that covers a large area of the body.
If you’d like me to create your masterpiece, we’ll start with a consultation and talk about your vision. We will brainstorm a little, get to know each other, and go from there. During your consultation, feel free to bring in any photos, drawings, statues, pets, crumpled up papers you have been holding onto for years, or any other reference materials to help describe your tattoo idea.
If your project sounds like a better fit for another artist’s style, I might introduce you while you’re here. Sometimes one of my colleagues here might have a closer expertise to what you’re looking for. I really just want you to have the best artist to bring your idea to life.
I’m a proud father and husband. I started my career as a screen printer and a graphic designer before transitioning into tattoo work. I’m also fascinated with oil painting and love when I get time to capture my art on canvas. I’ve been enjoying realism and portraiture, along with painting hands and skulls, animals, and still life. Flowers, too. I’m always exploring new directions in oil, so I’d love to hear your ideas as well.
Right now, my book out is 8-12 months for all large projects, but fear not—it comes up quick!
I absolutely recommend doing your consultation as soon as you can. I do consultation appointments every week and secure your appointments at that time.
I require a $175.00 deposit for your first hour to get started on your tattoo sketches. Your deposit goes towards your tattoo during your final sitting.
