Ever since Ryan was young, art was always something he was passionate about. In high school he would get into trouble for doodling instead of his work. In 2010 He,attended the Fashion Institute of Technology and in 2014 graduated with a bachelors degree in Illustration. After trying to break into the illustration field, he decided the corporate art world was not for him.

Tattooing had always been interesting to him so he decided to pursue his passion and become a Tattoo Artist. He was able to find the Academy of Responsible Tattooing here in Jersey City and immediately knew this was the right choice. Now an artist here at Body and Soul he could not be happier.
