At the age of 20, I joined the U.S. Army, where I was an Infantryman for 3 years. While stationed at Ft. Campbell, KY, I met a local tattooist and started my tattooing apprenticeship in 1983. In 1985 I was diagnosed with Testicular Cancer. After 2 major surgeries, and 4 months of chemotherapy, James Phillips and I opened up Dancing Dragon Tattoo in Oak Grove, KY. We have been going strong ever since.

I have traveled to Europe on numerous occasions, tattooing at conventions in Italy, Sweden and Germany. I have also attended numerous conventions in Prague, CZ.

Being a cancer survivor myself, it has been an honor to help other survivors by providing this service.
