Tod has always been passionate about art. During his eight year career in the United States Marine Corps, he traveled to many countries all over the world and experienced different cultures that have influenced his style of art. In 1998, he began working at the front desk at a local shop in Oceanside, California. He eventually got his own equipment and started practicing on his buddies in the barracks. Although he had always been a talented artist, his “big break”” as a tattoo artist didn’t come until 2001 when one of the artists at the shop didn’t show up for work. The owner told Tod to bring in his machines and get to work, and so it began.
Tod quickly made a name for himself and over the years became one of the better known tattoo artists in San Diego county. Demand for his work increased as he traveled to conventions, and out of state to accommodate clients from all over. In a huge step of faith, Tod and his wife Wendi moved their family to Weatherford, TX in 2008. Within one year, against all odds, they were blessed with the opportunity to open their own shop.
With over 15 years of experience in the tattoo industry, his portfolio proves that no matter what style his clients request from him, he is able to deliver. While his clientele continues to grow, Tod continues to push himself to grow as a well rounded artist. With every piece he works on, he tries different techniques and ideas to make each tattoo a unique piece of art. You can see his work in numerous tattoo magazines as well as on the skin of sweet band dudes such as August Burns Red, WovenWar, and Hell or Highwater.
