Raised as a poor black child under the iron fist of an angry Jehovah’s Witness grandfather, Damon was able to find a niche in playing the sax at an early age. His teenage years, filled with crime and a serious drinking problem, lead him to a short career in the army. It wasn’t until March of 1992 that he sobered up and finished an Associate of Arts Degree in June of 1993. With a degree, Damon was able to enter the world of 3D animation. When he got his first tattoo his life took another direction. He was able to get an internship at Slave to the Needle after randomly meeting a young Aaron Bell. After several years he was working at conventions and selling flash. Now Damon throws the Seattle Tattoo Expo, which has become well accepted by the Seattle community and media.
