Craig has always had a passion for drawing since he was a child. “I used to redraw all of my coloring book pages just to color them in again.” Craig is a veteran of the US Army, He joined at 17, served 4 years and did two tours overseas. He has over 11 years experience in tattooing. He actually started at the shop he now co-owns with his wife Jen in 2006 back then the shop was Sacred Skin. He is one of the few tattoo artists that can create color portraits in the Des Moines area. His favorite style is his own, but is experienced in all styles of tattooing. “When I first started tattooing I noticed that ALL of the “good” artists in the area were only focusing on one style. While they continued to pidgin hole themselves into one genre, I started studying them all dissecting each into their basic components and working on one component at a time, honing my craft into what you see today.” He has been featured in Cranial Visions by Mike Devries. His work has also been featured in the comedy "Zach & Miri Make a Porno", and recently on Frank Hannon from Tesla”s latest album cover.
