Gene:

I was born in the 70's in the S.F. Bay Area of California. Comic books, graffiti, tattoos, and all other assortments of weirdo art inspired me as a child.

As luck would have it, in 1995 I was offered an apprenticeship under Carls Hanes at International Tattoo Garden. I have since tattooed at Newskool Tattoo in San Jose, Alternative Tattoo in Beaverton, Picture Machine in S.F., Cold Steel in S.F and Pacific Tattoo in S.F.. I have done guest spots at Avalon Tattoo in San Diego, Belfast City Skinworks in N. Ireland, Body Graphics in Reno, Tiger Rose in Pismo Beach, Gold Coast in Monterey and probably a few more I can't think of right now. I have been tattooing at Pussycat Tattoo since 2003. Saad has not only been a great friend to me but a great source of inspiration (and humor).

I am very lucky to have spent time with all of the people who work, or have worked, at Pussycat. We have a well rounded crew and like to laugh. Come check us out and find out for yourself.
