Born and raised from the land of the rising sun, Heath is was immersed into a rich culture that vastly shaped his career choice. He spent his childhood growing up in Hawaii and Japan which shaped his growth in artistry. Drawing from the day he could hold a pencil, Heath was gifted his art ability from his artist father who encouraged his talents from early on. Today Heath is the founder and sole artist of Iron Heart which is named after Proverbs 23:26. Iron Heart and all of Heath's staff strives to treat everyone of every background and ethnicity like family when they walk in the door with the utmost respect and kindness; breaking the stereotypes of the typical tattoo shop. He has been tattooing for over thirteen years and takes pride in delivering the best possible custom piece for each new selected client.
Over the years the exponential client growth has given him true artistic freedom to choose the tattoo content per each request. He can no longer take on every single request, however his specialization is in realism, traditional Japanese and water color that he schedules year round. Yes, Heath still does the occasional ornate script and smaller tattoo.
