A little bit about myself and my experience with tattooing.... I started out in Amman, Jordan (where I grew up). I was awestruck by the first tattoo I saw, a man walking in the street.. I asked him where he had gotten it and he stated that he'd gotten it done in the U.S., starting my journey with tattooing and applying to come to America. I started self teaching myself how to tattoo with single needles, marker ink, ground up charcoal, hand-built machines (prison-style) etc. My cousins still have some of these 10 year old artist tattoos on them (God Bless them for letting me practice). It was a hard business to be in considering it was impossible to get the supplies I needed and tattooing isn't exactly acceptable/legal in Jordan. 10 years go by and I was finally approved for a green card to come to the states! Within 2 years I got to business opening my own shop along side by business partner (my wife). I'm proud to say I have been tattooing legally and professionally for 6 years here and grateful for every day that I am able to. On my days off I spend time with my two daughters who are my life! And my inspiration for everything I do. I'm excited about every new piece I get to add to my collection and so honored that each one of my clients has entrusted in me for their permanent art. Seeing the happy expressions on my clients faces when they look at their completed ink in the mirror for the first time is just the icing on the cake.
