Charlie started his artistic voyage as a young child. Early on, he had a knack for drawing and enjoyed sketching. As a young man he was mentored by his friend and fellow tattoo artist, Jeremiah, with whom he trained with for a year. During that year he specialized in traditional Japanese and American tattoos. He later went on to several other tattoo shops in the Atlanta area to expand and master his craft. After many years, Charlie, along with two of his fellow tattoo artists successfully opened 3 Alliance Tattoo shop in Atlanta located off Shallowford Road. It's here in his own shop that Charlie's tattoo style expanded. His new tattoo style is that of black and grey realism as well as surrealism. Charlie is an ever growing tattoo artist that is just scratching the surface of his talent. He is committed to making great works of art on the canvas that is the human body. He believes that a tattoo is more than a job, it is a life changing experience. Something that you will have forever and it's because of that, he is committed to giving his all to his art.
