I have touched a wide variety of branches since childhood such as spray, charcoal, pastel, watercolor, acrylic and digital design.” he states on his blog, adding that; “Nowadays I prefer graphite more, dedicating my nights to improve the technique. Within the tattoo world I have always loved realism, although I have always been open to new styles and to learn from them.
