I have been tattooing since 1992. I started at Picture Machine in San Francisco, apprenticing with Richard Cyr, last apprentice of Pat Martynuik. I opened Sacred Rose Tattoo in 1998 in SF and moved the shop to Berkeley in 2006. I opened a second private studio in Albany ( about a mile away from the original Berkeley shop) in 2010. I have a degree in fine art from CCA (1989) and play guitar in MILF! The Band.
