About The Founder

DSC_0432

Hello, my name is Daniel. I have been tattooing for over 20 years. 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 with the knowledge I obtained in my 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 by going to conventions and guest spots. I have been blessed to have traveled the US and Canada while helping other tattooers improve their technique teaching advanced  black and grey portraiture seminars. I have also competed on a national level, was published and featured in over 50 magazines and books world wide.These opportunities allowed me to work alongside some of the best tattooers in the world and grow my talent.

I’m a people person who offers my clients a comfortable setting, calm music and good conversation. I enjoy working with my clients to create one of kind pieces that best express their individuality. I specialize doing black and grey tattoos, and portraits. Additionally, I enjoy anything related to nature and faith based tattoos. I thrive when doing these types of tattoos.

If you are interested in doing a large piece requiring 3 hours or more, I invite you to email the studio to book a consultation. My wait times my vary depending on the time of year. I usually keep a small waiting list.   I look forward to taking your design to the next level!
