I was helping a friend run his bar when I met the man who would catapult me into tattooing full time. That person is Jedidiah Reid, and he’s been my mentor at Element Tattoo in San Antonio, TX, ever since we first met back in 2005. I had always been fascinated with the idea of getting my own business, but I didn’t have a clear path forward. That all changed when I partnered up with Dan Barnett and became even more interested in tattooing as well! However, at this time, San Antonio wasn’t exactly booming in the tattoo industry. So we ended up building Fortune Brothers Tattoo Co., which quickly became one, if not the topshop around town due mostly because our level style work matched their customers’ tastes perfectly.
