All consultations are free. You can book one here, just pick a time and I'm yours for an hour!

During the consultation we trade ideas and design a rough copy of what you want to get, print it and check placement and size. Then we can go over price, time, and anything else that comes to mind.

I can't easily do consultations over the phone or through text messages, so its best to set up a time on my booking page via the link above.



A tattoo artist of course!


Hey everyone, and thanks for visiting my page. I am Ben and I've been tattooing in the Midwest for almost 10 years, but now I offer my amazing tattoos to the Mississippi Gulf Coast area. I have clients in Gulfport, Biloxi, and Ocean springs, so you may have seen some of my work already, if not, check out my super sweet portfolio here.


Midwest is a pretty broad area, so lets get that cleared up. I started tattooing in 2007 with season 6&7  Ink Master contestant St. Marq in Indianapolis, Indiana. Mark had already been tattooing 20 years at the time, so it was a pretty fantastic experiencing learning the basics of tattooing from him, especially learning his "no outline" realism style. I ended up working with him for the first 6 years of my career before moving on to tattoo in new areas.


After a brief stint in Indianapolis and a few years in West Lafayette, Indiana, I moved to Dayton, Ohio and tattooed at Blue Byrd and Truth and Triumph. Both of these shops had so many talented people, I learned a lot from every single person I was lucky enough to work with. But I had to bail, and Mississippi was my number one option. I don't know why so don't ask.


So here I am! Doing amazing tattoos on Mississipi's Gulf Coast, serving Biloxi, Gulfport, and Ocean Springs, trying to get some big and impressive pieces on my new friends down here. So thanks again for visiting my website, and if you need any help schedule a free consultation via my Book Now option!


I specialize in realism. That means anything that looks real a.k.a. "3D" tattoos. Basically anything you can take a picture of, I can turn into a tattoo for you that looks identical or better.

This can be portraits of people, wildlife, animals, flowers, old sculptures, paintings, pop culture - you name it, I'll make it amazing.
