Dakota was born in Bellville Ontario and has been drawing since he was 10 years old. Having a passion for the arts throughout his youth, Dakota eventually decided to pursue an education in film at Toronto Film School. After studying photography and videography, Dakota made a major change in his career path towards the tattoo industry where he has been working for the past 10 years.
Dakota is always striving to learn and develop as an artist. He is known for his bold use of colour but he also enjoys creating dark gothic styles, romantic and vivid pieces that make an impact. Dakota is easy going and friendly, while taking each tattoo he does very seriously so his clients are left with work they will wear proudly.
