At a young age, I knew I wanted to do something creative. I was lucky to have close family in my hometown of Chicago, Illinois who helped mentor and guide me to a path of success. I remember admiring my uncle’s artistry while growing up. I would watch him draw cartoon characters in such great detail, I decided to follow in his footsteps.
My grandmother was also a huge support in nurturing my gifts. She noticed I was taking her Ebony Magazine and drawing models from the pages. Encouraging my creativity, she bought me a paint by numbers kit. This helped to further develop my artistic talents, teach me patience, and challenge my potential.
My mother, in her own right, has always been a tattoo collector. Every time she came home with new ink, my curiosity would be piqued. With my mother’s blessing, I got my first tattoo at age 14 and was immediately captivated. It was around this time I met my first mentor, who gave me heavy encouragement to become a tattoo artist.
