I moved around a lot when I was younger, but have spent most my time in Mesa Arizona. I started getting tattooed when I was 18 years old. After getting my first tattoo, I started buying tattoo magazines like crazy wanting to draw designs from them. I've always loved art and have always done something art related ever since I can remember. Besides tattooing graphite is my favorite medium to work with.
I started an apprenticeship when I was 20 years old and finished when I was 22 in 2008. I worked at a few shops before I started Next Wave in 2009 when i was 23 years old. I came up with the name Next Wave during my apprenticeship. It comes from always wanting to be a better artist, be the next wave create something new and exciting. Over the years Next Wave has moved a few times around the valley and is now settled in Mesa. I couldn't be more thankful for tattooing and all my clients. I'm continuing to grow an push myself everyday.
