Tattoo Artist | Owner Ritual Tattoo Berkeley

I’ve worn many hats in my life, though all of them were based in artistic endeavors. I started as a musician touring the world as a trumpet player for jazz, rock and ska bands. After college when I decided I wanted to do something different with my life, I became a carpenter and started my own business. Five years ago, I began tattooing and I haven’t looked back since. I’ve always had a sincere appreciation for art and the amount of precision and skill that comes with drawing, but most importantly, I love people and feeling connected.
