created his first tattoo at age eleven, with a needle, thread,
and a bottle of india ink. Dan continued to practice tattooing
by this method until age seventeen when he learned how to make a
homemade tattoo machine.
At nineteen, Dan entered Vesper George
School of Art in Boston, MA, which he attended for three years,
majoring in fine art. Dan finished art school in 1972, spent the
next twenty years or so tattooing underground, then began
tattooing in a studio in 1994.
With his background in fine art, Dan is a master at portrait
work, both black and gray and color. His natural style is
representational and photo realistic, but is comfortable with
all styles. Dan continues to grow as an artist, always striving
total perfection. He finds fulfillment in creating a perfect
tattoo for each client, and complete satisfaction from
practicing his art.
