Hi, my name is Red. I'm originally from Chapin, South Carolina. I grew up in a little house on a lake and trained horses for ten years until it was time to focus on university. I studied Painting and photography at the University of South Carolina in Columbia, and graduated in 2009 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. After university, I travelled and worked as a barista until I became a tattoo artist. While I am still tattooing at Lifted Veil in Asheville, NC, these days I can also be found painting and making in my studio in South Carolina’s Dark Corner. For fun, I enjoy hiking, rock climbing, rainy/foggy weather, reading, drinking coffee, and gardening.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
