John was born in New York under a Uranus-Jupiter conjunction in Sagittarius. He channels this energy along with his knowledge of astrology, alchemy, and sacred geometry into his designs. The rich symbolism and history of those subjects provides an infinite amount of creative possibilities. His fascination with rituals from ancient cultures, the micro and macrocosm, physics, space, and mystery also surfaces in his work.
John graduated with a Bachelor’s degree of Fine Arts from the School of Visual Arts and studied Tibetan Buddhism at the Nyingma Institute in Berkley, California. He apprenticed to tattoo under Snake Eyes of B-52 Tattoo in Brooklyn. Now, he is honored to work with the talented crew at Saved Tattoo.
