Mark finished up a large scale piece with one more session left unused... You're asking yourself, "what does this even mean?" Well my friend, this means that Mark has an all day session open and available Friday June 2nd and he would absolutely LOVE to do an amazing portrait. Call or email the studio with your ideas and let's do something fun! :)

Reno Tattoo Artist

What got you interested in tattooing: When I turned 18, I didn’t have much direction… but I did have an extensive art background. Since nobody was hiring for corporate management or chairman positions in the bay area at the time, I decided to pursue a career in tattoo art, beginning with an apprenticeship at a shop in my home town. The endless possibilities of what can be created in tattoo art, and the permanence of the work inspired me to learn all I could about the coveted art and progress and evolve my contribution to it.

What are your thoughts on tattoos: Well, they are mainly for the criminal element, which is awesome. OK, so tattoo art is losing its taboo status… that is a positive direction that I believe in. As the world becomes more progressive and drops the judgments about individualism, this art will flourish even more. It is an honor to be able to adorn people with my art, and it is not something I take for granted.


What style/genre tattoo is your favorite:
I love tattoos that incorporate techniques you don’t see everyday; that dare to be different than the current trend. Since individualism is an important concept in our craft, I appreciate those ‘fringe’ tattoos that defy contemporary techniques and practices, and showcase something new. Ultimately, I appreciate all styles and the overall history of the tattoo art that brought it to where it is today.

Who or what influences your art style: I’m not too sure, there are definitely artists I have admired and looked up to, including Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell, Keith Parkinson, H.R. Giger, Frank Frazetta, and many others. I do not think my work really takes after their art, but their mentality and ideas about art inspired me.

Personal thoughts: I have been a professional artist for over 10 years, and it has been quite a journey so far. Despite the time I have dedicated to my career, it has never become drab and passionless for me. I am thankful everyday I get to immortalize my art on peoples’ skin, and very optimistic about the future of my craft.
