Tattost & Painter
I'm a Denver, Colorado-based tattooer and visual artist from Atlanta, Georgia.
I use drawing as a stream of consciousness and/or journaling practice to process my experiences, my identities, and my relationships. Sometimes I know what my images are about, sometimes I don't. The shapes, lines, and beings that spawn are my trauma, hurt, and joy incarnate. Seeing the original marks I make simultaneously makes my identities and trauma more visible to me, and more abstract, and that feels good.
I am also lucky enough to facilitate the never ending process of understanding ourselves for others through my tattooing practice. We archive, we process, we record, we reclaim and it is truly an honor.
