8:55 - My work gets inspiration from pre-consumerist structure that exist within the tattoo world of today; a lot of it is based on nostalgic longing ideas of travel and home, missed love and romance... a memory of sorts.
10:38 - For me art is the moment when I get lost in the process, forgetting my self, forgetting the sense of time, a very therapeutic way to live in this world. I learned tattooing in Nepal and it was something that fell into my lap rather than seeking it.
13:00 - I deal with the idea of permanence from the perspective of a design that can last beyond trends and time. I keep this in mind when I create a design and tattoo. I am creating something that hopefully won’t feel passé in years to come.
