Dooz has been in the tattoo business for 25 years, he first got into tattooing when some of his friends, who knew he could draw, bought him tattoo equipment, and surprised him with it, along with the request that he tattoo them! Dooz says about this story, “... let me add though that this is never a good way to start and I would never recommend anyone going this route. Do yourself and the craft a favor and start with a legit apprenticeship in a reputable studio.”
He is inspired by Sabado, Louis Malloy, when asked about his greatest inspirations, Dooz says, “The list is endless.”
We asked him about his favorite tattoos, and the hardest tattoo he has ever worked on. His favorite one is pictured below (to the left, above, etc.). When it comes to the hardest one though, “That in an on-going question,” Dooz says, “so I'd just have to say that you never know what is going to walk through the door.”
Dooz loves the chance to fix old or bad tattoos. Essentially putting people's trust back into tattoos by making them proud of what they have instead of being embarrassed by them. He also loves doing animal portraits, Japanese, and traditional tattoos.
When not in the tattoo studio, Dooz can be found kayaking, hunting, or riding his single speed bike all over downtown Savannah, GA. Also - his favorite color is green, his favorite word is “rad” and Deutschland uber allies!!!
