Ryan has been tattooing since 2009, 9th tattoo being a portrait of Edward Scissorhands. His passion is in realism or anime tattoo work. Anything horror, pop culture, nerd, geek, gamer, anime related work. Self taught due to the very few realistic tattoo artists in the NW while learning how to tattoo. He looked towards quality realism artists like Nikko Hurtado and Paul Acker for inspiration to continue to grow and better himself as an artist. He is currently sponsored by Eternal Tattoo Ink.
Ryan has closed his books for anything outside of his main interest/passion when it comes to tattooing. Currently he is only accepting pieces that are horror, anime, gamer, movie, comic, pop culture related designs.
Besides tattooing Ryan also paints and does graphic design. He's done vinyl sign design, drawing up designs for t-shirts, painting custom designs on canvas, digital paintings, 3d and 2d video game design, as well as all the work put into the website, promotion material, business cards for Necropolis Tattoo (previously named Tattoo Asylum).
He would like to one day work as a creative production designer for a large budget video game production. Video games have played a large role in his life, and feels as though there is a lot he can bring to a development team.
For paintings his hourly rate for tattoos is the same for paintings. Paintings completion time varies greatly depending on size, content, and if it is done in acrylics or oils.
