Born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Don began drawing at an early age and found a natural talent. Through adolescence art wasn't a priority, but after finishing his bachelors of business administration at the University of Central Oklahoma in 2011, Don and his beautiful wife and son moved to New Mexico. There, influenced and inspired by the thriving tattoo culture of Albuquerque, he made the decision to become a part of it. Soon he went from shop to shop with years worth of doodles and drawings. In 2012 Aces Tattoo took him on as an apprentice and he has been working hard to perfect his craft ever since. Don looks forward to many more happy years as a professional tattoo artist.
