Know your artist:
A Colorado native born February 27, 1996, I moved to Ohio at a young age. After graduating from Rootstown High School in 2014, I found myself unsure of my next step in life. In the meantime I began getting tattooed by Tim Sandercock, drawn to his artistic style and signature mustache. Being passionate about art for as long as I could remember, I curiously began asking questions about tattooing. Eventually I showed Tim some of my artwork, and to my surprise he expressed the potentiality of an apprenticeship. With some contemplation I put together a portfolio, which I brought to him and Clint. With their approval I was fortunate enough to earn the apprenticeship, which I started in October of 2016. With Tim and the rest of the War Horse family’s guidance I eventually began tattooing full time at our Ravenna location, beginning the most challenging yet rewarding experience of my life. Aside from tattooing, I am an avid crystal collector and passionate concert goer.
