Gene is currently here by appointment only. You may reach him at (707) 366-5367 or at his wonderful new shop Two Rivers Tattoo in Fairfield, California. Stop in and say hello!


I’ve never looked at tattooing as my job, but my lifestyle. I did my first tattoo when I was twelve years old and was addicted ever since.

I started my apprenticeship under Tim Reasons. I’ve been tattooing professionally for 10+ years, mostly in the east bay. I often tattoo on the road at conventions and doing guest spots with my buddies at Folsom CIty Ink, Bay Area Ink Spot, and Delta Art & Tattoo in California.

When I’m not tattooing, my time is spent with watercolor paintings or acrylics on multiple mediums. I find myself tattooing many different styles such as Japanese, black and grey, lettering.


I mostly enjoy and specialize in tattooing American Traditional and  Neo-Traditional. If you find yourself wanting to be creative and crazy, throw me some ideas you may have and I’ll gladly put pencil to paper and draw you some bad ass original piece with a little twist of my own style.
