Hello everyone! Elmo here, thanking you for stopping by the new site..

For those of you who don’t know me i’ll introduce myself a bit:

My career began with a less than favorable apprenticeship in TX at the age of 17, and began full-time tattooing at the age of 18. Now with over 16 years of tattooing under my belt I feel that i love it more now than ever before. Since my days in TX I’ve moved all around the country, working my from Oklahoma, Iowa, until I found my home in Kansas City.  I’m now at Skinquest Tattoo in Kansas City, MO.  You can find me here when I’m not traveling.

Over the years my style of tattooing has leaned from color-bomb new school to an almost neo-traditional flair. Although i mainly enjoy color, I also take great pride in honing my skills in black and grey, and to be as well rounded as possible. Cause if your not willing to push yourself, you’ll never grow as a person or artist. I enjoy taking clients ideas and bringing them to life as well as I can no matter the style.

I am very fortunate to get to do what I love and provide for my family doing so. When I’m not at the studio in Independence, you can find me traveling to show or guest spots all over. Feel free to check out the travel dates page to see where I’ll be next.

If you find yourself near the studio or at a show I’m at feel free to stop by, say hey, and get a new tattoo.
