I began tattooing in the beginning of 2007, down in New Orleans. Fate brought me back to my home in Minnesota where I spent several years working in Saint Paul, at an amazing shop aptly named TrustFate Tattoo. I then set sails for Northeast MPLS where I resided for two years until I opened The Sea Wolf Tattoo Company. The Sea Wolf is my brainchild based on the notion that tattoo shops can still be artist owned and operated, and can cater to the tattoo savvy customers. I focus on tattooing with a strong American Traditional foundation, bold black lines with bright colors. Tattoos that look like tattoos. Thanks for looking!

Native Beauty

I got to tattoo this pretty native gal on Marissa not too long ago. This is by far in my top five favorite things to tattoo. Native American imagery is especially enjoyable to tattoo as it conjures up feelings of old Americana. My only real qualm with it…


Red Headed Pin Up Girl Tattoo

This lovely gal is tattooed on my client, Jason. Jason has been an exemplary client, giving me lots of freedom in designing his tattoos. In this case he wanted a pin up girl tattoo, and being that he is a very proud red head, we had  to give her some brig…


Lion Tattoo

Happy Thanksgiving! Here is a lion tattoo that I made on my very old friend, Jake. I love the lion as a tattoo design, it’s such a powerful image. Really any fierce predator works so well as a tattoo design, but specifically big cats are the best. I’m sur…


Dagger Tattoos

Once again I let quite a bit of time slip by without posting on here, so still playing catch up. Here we have a couple dagger tattoos that I tattooed last spring. Dagger tattoos are some of my favorite images in the tattoo world as they are so versatile a…


Wolf and Dagger Tattoo

Well, here we have yet another wolf tattoo…surprise, surprise. Actually I am completely ok with doing these wolf tattoos on a daily basis, just never gets old. This tattoo is on T.J., who was a regular at the last shop I worked at, and we recently got rec…


Full Back Wolf Tattoo

I got to put this wolf tattoo on Ciara’s back some time ago. I couldn’t be happier on how this tattoo turned out. Ciara came in to Sea Wolf Tattoo Company as a walk in looking for a grim reaper tattoo. She casually mentioned she was also in the market for…


Pretty Lady Tattoo

Well, it’s been quite some time since I’ve posted anything here. With the shop continually getting busier and busier, I find it hard to make time posting on the website. So I will be playing a bit of catch up with some older tattoos. This pretty lady tatt…

We are happy to announce that for one day only, we will have a pop up tattoo shop at Bauhaus Brew Labs for Art-A-Whirl in Northeast Minneapolis. On Sunday May 17th from noon until 5pm, we will be offering roughly 20 beer related tattoo designs to choose f…


Dog Portrait Tattoo

I had the pleasure of tattooing a dog portrait on my client, Jason. Jason’s dog is half wolf, half husky, and all awesome. I’d love to do more portraits like this, sort of a mix of classic traditional and black/grey realism tattooing. Thank you Jason, and…


Wolf Tattoo

I had the pleasure of putting this snarly wolf tattoo on Kevin. Kevin had a small tattoo in need of covering, so we snuck it in the forehead of this wolf tattoo, which worked out swimmingly. I think of all things used for cover ups, the wolf tattoo, or an…
