For the past 9 years I have been a tattoo artist and I could never imagine myself in any other career. I feel constantly inspired and this feeds my passion and drives me to express my creativity through my tattoo machine. I have been blessed to be part of some amazing shops along my journey to where I am today, and most recently winning “Best Tattoo Artist/Shop” in Surrey, Delta, and White Rock as voted by the public. That said, I have always known that I would one day own my own shop, and so with the encouragement of my beautiful wife and a bond built on respect and honesty with my business partner Kent, Lasting Legacy Tattoos was created. My vision for this shop is not just to build a shop, but to build a place that we can call home. Our team is not just a team, but a family. So with Kent and I, our lucky ladies .I invite you into our home to be part of our Lasting Legacy.

A few years ago I made a tough decision and put down my tattoo machine in order to grow a successful business in the film industry. I never lost my passion for tattooing and I knew in my heart that one day I would return to it. So, when Matt approached me with his idea to open a new shop, I knew instantly that-that time was now. This was exactly the push I needed to get back to doing what I love, and with the added bonus of having another amazing artist, and close friend, by my side. I decided to take Matt up on his offer to work together. Our goal is to forge a legacy, built on respect and honesty, that will last longer than forever. A legacy that includes you, your friends, and your families. So, on behalf of our family, here at Lasting Legacy Tattoos, I invite you to stop by any time. I cant wait to meet you when you get here.

I have been an artist for all of my life. When I was 19 I met with Larry Wright of Native Arts Tattoo and was given an apprenticeship. I worked with him at his shop in Red Deer, Alberta until I was 23. Since then I have been working on the one way in Langley, where I grew up. I enjoy tattooing and am lucky to get to do so for a living. I also enjoy painting, sculpting, writing, sewing.. and many other crafts.
I've loved doing art as long as I can remember. I was offered the opportunity to go through the fine arts program in high school, and decided I wanted to get into tattooing when I was 14. It has been amazing to be given the chance to follow my dreams. I strive every day to improve, push my boundaries and live my best life. I love giving people a way to express themselves and tell their story, while writing the next chapter of my own.
I Watched my dad do his apprenticeship. while i was growing up. I was always hanging out at his shop since forever. I Apprenticed under the man, my dad. I am a easy going laid back guy. I love to tattoo rad stuff that my clients want , but my passion is the dark pieces.
I have always had a passion for art & for as long as I can remember, I have been mesmerized by tattoos & how some artists can reach inside the minds of their clients & transfer their dream onto their skin. This connection between artist & client was what linked me eternally to my husband Matt. I wear our love story very proudly & expand it as our life journey continues. As my husband expresses his artistic abilities through tattoos, I express my art & creations through my companies based in beautiful Langley BC .
I feel very blessed to be part of my husband's dream to own his own shop & I look forward to meeting you & being part of your Lasting Legacy experience.
