20130930-080253.jpgAs I was growing up, drawing had always come naturally to me, and art has always inspired me. Through-out school, and some university courses, I have always put my best effort into anything I’m working on, and have always liked experimenting with new mediums.

I come from a large family, that has supported me through the many good times, and the persistent hard times that we all go through. I have a colorful past, but from the very first time i put a tattoo machine to skin, there’s been nothing more important to me.

I got my start tattooing in Alaska in 2004. Although I have traveled and built hiking and biking trails for Americorps all across our country and have printed t-shirts with my twin brother for twelve plus years, including work for Abercrombie and Fitch, American Outpost, and Fossil; nothing has been more rewarding to me than tattooing. I enjoy working with a client to invent their vision, and creating an individual piece of art.

I am always trying to learn more, and always motivated to keep things fresh and creative. You can check out more of my work on under the name Daniel Mark Parish. You can contact me via email at: I’m also on Instagram under the name danielparish, and on Tumblr @
