Dual Artistry: Bridging the Realms
of Tattoos & Commercial Design
Throughout my creative journey, I've had the privilege of guiding countless clients in creating artwork that echoes their distinctive identity and encapsulates their soul. Each project resonates with the unique voice and vision of my clients, whether the canvas teems with life or remains still. My passion thrives within this creative process, as I wholeheartedly strive to provide every client with an unparalleled masterpiece that reflects their individuality and personal vision.
I established Mystic Moon Media LLC in 2003.
After earning a bachelor's degree in graphic design and gaining experience in the realm of commercial art, I took the pivotal step of founding Mystic Moon Media LLC. The path that led me here was enriched by several years dedicated to tattoo artistry. This transformative journey began at the age of 18, under the mentorship of the esteemed tattoo artist, Chicago Ed. Those formative years not only laid the foundation for my venture but also played an integral role in shaping the essence of Mystic Moon Media LLC as it stands today.
My trajectory has gifted me with a wealth of unique life experiences, crafting a distinct perspective and honing remarkable skills in both tattooing and commercial design. This fusion empowers me to serve my clients with an extraordinary blend of expertise, mastery, and creative prowess from both domains. The culmination of my journey enables me to infuse your project with unparalleled skill and imagination.
As a professional tattoo artist,
I am a specialist in full-color realism, with a deep passion and exceptional proficiency in crafting tattoos inspired by nature and organic forms. My expertise shines particularly on a grander canvas, as it enables me to mirror the intricate detailing that defines my digital paintings. Beyond my signature style, I'm also well-versed in diverse tattooing genres, including black and gray or monochromatic realism. In essence, if you can envision it, chances are I can bring it to life through the art of tattooing!

As an accomplished commercial artist,
I am a digital artist with a distinct focus on painting captivating fantasy and pagan realism paintings. My creations have found homes across the globe, and my artistic journey has taken me far and wide, showcasing my work at various events nationwide. For over a decade, I've established a creative haven at the Bristol Renaissance Faire.
Throughout my career, I've engaged in fruitful collaborations with numerous companies, my work gracing an array of products including the enchanting oracle cards like 'The Witching Hour Oracle'. My innate gift for creative expression, coupled with an extensive artistic repertoire, empowers me to fashion intricate and mesmerizing paintings that breathe life into my clients' projects.
Even though I possess considerable artistic talents, it's important to acknowledge that my work and artistic style may not resonate with everyone.
Here are a few examples that fit my artistic tattooing style:
✓ Full Color REALISM
✓ Natural Organic Designs
✓ Large Tattoos: Full Sleeves, Thigh Pieces, Back Pieces, etc.
✓ Nature Tattoos: Animals, Landscapes, Plants, Trees, Flowers, etc.
✓ Fantasy Creatures: Dragons, Unicorns, Mermaids, etc.
✓ Highly Detailed Tattoos
My expertise lies in creating full-color, intricately detailed, and lifelike tattoos.
Achieving the level of detail necessary for realism is closely linked to the size of the tattoo.
A larger canvas allows me to incorporate an enhanced level of detail, resulting in a more authentic and realistic appearance.
Here are a few examples of tattoo ideas that don't fit my style:
X Geometric Designs X Tattoos Containing Text
X Traditional tattoo designs with heavy line work.
X Mechanical items such as pocket watches, compasses, and automobiles.
