Soon after obtaining a Bachelors Degree from the University of Massachusetts, in 1998, Bud started tattooing in California's underground tattoo scene. In 2002 he apprenticed at a prominent tattoo studio in the White Mountains of New Hampshire where he learned the importance of mastering all styles of tattooing.
Bud soon developed his own unique style, incorporating vivid colors and extreme detailing giving his work an almost three-dimensional look and feel. While retaining a respect for, and excelling in all styles of tattooing, Bud's specialties include: portraiture, realism and traditional tattoo styles.
After years of working in New Hampshire tattoo studios, Bud went out on his own and opened Spyglass Tattoo in 2007. Since then he has won numerous tattoo awards, had his flash designs featured by prominent Tattoo companies such as Kingpin Tattoo and Pulse International, and managed a hectic schedule with clients booked out as far as two months.
