BIO

Though Danny has always been interested in visual art and tattoos, he cut his creative teeth drumming and singing in bands along the East Coast. As a child, Danny remembers seeing tattoos on his grandpa’s arms, back when tattoos came with plenty of stories and a lot of respect. And even at an early age, Danny became very intrigued with the ability to express one’s self through images portrayed on skin. He feels that tattoos, whether directly meaningful or not, tell a story. He came to realize that he wanted to work in a capacity where he could help illustrate these stories, and so while taking a break from touring with bands, decided that it was time to pay his dues and give his complete focus and energy to the craft of tattooing. So he put down the drumsticks and microphones, and picked up a pencil and got to work. After apprenticing in North Carolina, Danny bounced around for awhile until he found a welcoming home in the Chattanooga area, where he has built a loyal fan base and following. He cranks out work on a daily basis that keeps clients coming back for more.

Style…

Danny’s focus is on being well rounded as a tattooer, but many people seek him out for his pointillism style designs, which often include a wide range of images from his love for nature. You will also notice Danny loves geometric motifs along with very minimalistic designs. Danny also loves to do typography based designs, traditional designs, and always loves to push the envelope with new styles and techniques. Danny is also a very talented and accomplished graphic designer. Most of the great graphic designs you see on this site and in the studio are the work of this motivated and progressive artist.

Inspiration…

Many of Danny’s own tattoos, and a huge driving force in his life, revolves around his faith and belief in God. As far as creatively, Danny says that whether it be working tattoo conventions, being constantly surrounded by fellow artists, or being blessed with amazing clients, he is constantly inspired by forces that help him to grow and evolve as an artist. Danny is still an avid drummer and loves 500 bands you’ve never heard of, so music is still and always be a constant source of inspiration.
