Though a tattooer by trade, Bryan never planned on it, "The only thing I’ve ever wanted to be as a kid was a pro surfer." Born and raised in Southern California, Bryan grew up surfing and skating and was heavily influenced by the surf culture of SoCal. It was this connection that embedded him within the world of tattooing and from there, he’s gained inspiration from all aspects of his community. "Every decision I’ve ever made in my life has helped expose and submerse me deeper into the tattoo world."
His deep appreciation for the art of tattooing is continually fostered by everything from music, friends, family and religion. Apprenticing under Tim Hendricks, Bryan learned the fundamentals of tattooing, from learning how to build machines and making needles, to the time-honored tricks and traditions to ensure the integrity of every tattoo he does. Bryan is a tattooer through and through and is grateful that tattooing found him.
