Ben hails from West Virginia and rural Western Maryland. He originally got into art through the punk and hip hop music scenes doing graffiti, illustrating album covers, show flyers, and graphics for various bands. After returning from a five year stint of playing music professionally in NYC, Ben found himself with an opportunity to learn how to tattoo. Since 2014, Ben has been unrelenting in his study and pursuit of the craft.

Clients enjoy Ben’s approachable, easy-going attitude and his interest in their personal stories. He particularly enjoys doing American traditional, pointillism, sacred geometry, and religious/spiritual tattoos.
