Chris picked up his first machine at twelve years old and from then on tattooing was not only his hustle, but his passion. At the age of eighteen, he joined the United States Marine Corps and was a Marine by day and a tattoo artist by night. Upon completion of his military service, he relocated from Hawaii to North Carolina to open his own shop, Capones Parlor and Tattoo Crew. Tattooing for Chris is more than a trade, it is a culture in which he is very honored to be able to express himself artistically. Since opening his shop, Chris has married and had two amazing children. Chris specializes psychedelic realism and photo realism. Click his photo to check out his work!
