Tattooing since 2005, Wes has spent many years finding his niche in tattooing. After several years of experimenting with this style, and that style he had an epiphany. Wes realized he just loved tattooing. So armed with the experience of tattooing many different styles, he set out to be a Jack of all trades. Tattooing everything from Realism to Japanese to American Traditional, there is nothing Wes can't do, while always trying to grow as an artist. Throughout the years Wes had the privilege of working with an array of very talented artists; from Daniel Brockett and Tristan Bradshaw at Aces Tattoo to Liz Cook and David Mushaney at Rebel Muse. The time eventually came when Wes had to venture out on his own in this tattoo wilderness and build his own creative workspace. So in 2016 Wes opened Metropolis Tattoo and Fine Art with friend and co-owner Mark Smith. Combining a noir asthetic with an art gallery and classic tattoo shop feel, Metropolis focuses on establishing a venue for creativity that involves not only it's artists but also the communtity.
