Hello, my name  Daniel,

If you are looking for a tattoo, I would enjoy hearing from you!  I’m a people person who offers my clients a comfortable setting, calm music and good conversation. My clients comment that I  listen well to their needs and work with them to create one of kind pieces that best express their individuality. Though I do some smaller pieces, I thrive when doing true custom artwork and large pieces requiring 4 hours or more . I look forward to taking your design to the next level. I do not take walk in customers but am happy to consult with individuals about design ideas and set a future appointment.

My scheduled hours are Monday – Friday 11am – 5pm. If you have a question regarding a tattoo by me, The only way to reach me is by email. Existing customers get priority and can expect a response in 24-28 hours through the week. New clients may have to wait up to a week. Thank you for your patience! My email is luckyrabbitarts@gmail.com

I have been tattooing for over 20 years and specialize in black and grey portraiture. I got my start in 1993 taking an apprenticeship under Jim Brown in my hometown of Fostoria, OH. Shortly thereafter, I decided to enter the military and became a medical laboratory technician. My talent for creating art collaborated well with the knowledge I learned in medical training. Customer service, proper medical practice, sterile technique, and new technology became my focus. Armed with this information, I adopted new methods and pushed for widespread acceptance of safe tattooing.

Shortly after envisioning Lucky Rabbit and building a clientele, I decided to improve my artistic skills and goto conventions and do guest spots. These allowed me the opportunity to work alongside some of the best tattooers in the world. I have been lucky enough to have traveled the US and Canada and help other tattooers improve their technique by teaching advanced  black and grey portraiture seminars. I traveled to many conventions and competed on a national level, was published and featured in over 50 magazines and books world wide.

I enjoy being a part of our community. I have a heart for at risk youth and baseball. I love Starbucks, enjoy time with my friends and family and cannot stop cooking or planning a good BBQ!

Thanks for your time!!
