Shannon is a tattoo artist at Red Rocket Tattoo located in New York City. He is also an independent comic artist with numerous projects under his belt including Poison Elves Blood for Stone, Inkslinger, and Sky Pirates of Valendor.

In his words:  “I grew up in southwest Missouri and learned to tattoo in 2001. Pop culture strongly influenced my artwork growing up, and I think my tattooing style reflects that. Comic books, video games and cartoons are the things I like to tattoo the most, and I always get excited when I get the chance to do something in that vein. As thoroughlyas I enjoy making the weird, over-the-top tattoos, I always craft the cleanest tattoo I can, regardless of style. My favorite color is purple. Hugs and kisses.”
