About Dan

Starting his professional tattoo career at Dragonland Tattoo in 1999, Dan has found a special knack for tattooing fantasy, horror and sci-fi/space pieces and the occasional flower. This is the clientele that he has built a large and loving foundation with.

Dan has also worked on art projects for Average Skateboards, Guy Aitchinson Sketch Book, A.P.T. Sketchbook, and too many art exhibits to mention.

Award Winning

With all this publicity, it’s no wonder Dan has one over 175 Awards coast-to-coast and in Europe.

Dan usually focuses on medium to larger pieces in both color and black and grey. It’s rare he ever does a “one and done” but ask because the subject matter might be right up his alley.


Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 12pm-7pm.

If we need to set up consecutive sessions to finish larger pieces (ie. backs, sleeves, legs, whatever…) please have your itinerary/schedule ready so we can set up several sessions. This will eliminate “phone tag” for weeks to find out the days you want have already been taken.

Dan is currently following the CDC's Covid protocal requirements. Traveling clients should contact Dan ahead of time to follow appropriate procedures.

Dan is currently booked approximately 4-6 months out. Please call Dragonland Tattoo at (952) 933-2097 for the current appointment schedule.
