Born and raised in California, Chris started drawing as a young child and eventually pursued a degree in college for Fine Arts. There he grew a passion for creating charcoal, graphite and watercolor artworks. With a love and respect for tattooing he took an apprenticeship in a local shop where he began working on pig skin and his loyal friends. Now as a full time licensed artist he can think of no other profession to be in. Chris LOVES Black & Gray Realistic designs, as well as Cartoons & Pop Culture inspired pieces.
