Not many people can say that at 7 years of age that he knew what he was going to be when he grew up, but Ryan can. Upon seeing his first tattoo, he set his sails for the world of tattooing and did everything to make it happen. Ryan began tattooing after a lengthy apprenticeship under his now wife, Anji, in 2003. Fine-line Architecture designs to Bold Polynesian Tribal, Bright Bold Color to Smooth Black and Grey; all styles inspire him. People from near and far seek him out for his strength in the unique style of Trash Polka, where he was one of the first to bring that style to the Vegas Valley. Ryan is known as the “Machine Whore” of the shop, can always be found reading up (and sometimes stalking) the newest information on the best new equipment and info available.
