Originally moving to Orange County in 2004, Dan has spent the last 15 years of his life traveling extensively throughout the US and abroad pursuing both music and tattooing. In 2008, Dan began working in Hollywood at Kat Von D’s High Voltage Tattoo.

In 2009 he joined the cast of TLC’s LA INK and was a featured cast member throughout the third and fourth seasons of the program. After the culmination of the show in 2011, Dan continued tattooing in Los Angeles until the end of 2012, whilst still maintaining a heavy travel and touring schedule. In 2013 Dan left High Voltage to establish his own Captured Tattoo in scenic Old Town Tustin in Orange County, California.

Dan is an accomplished, all rounded tattooer that's mostly recognize for his bold, detailed and colourful work. It is strong when it needs to be and delicate when you least expect it. He takes influence from album art and iconic styles to 80's skateboard graphics and culture but his admiration for classic traditional imagery always shines through the brightest.
