The ancient art form of tattooing is extremely technical by nature, making it skill that can only be learnt through practice. Most of Booger's work begins outside the studio, from an idea or reference, to a sketch, to a painting, to a stencil, to the tattoo; he likes to think of his work as a whole arrangement, from start to finish. The process itself plays a significant role in the final tattoo. The work undergoes shifts and changes through each step, particularly when considering that the design must translate to skin, an organ that too shifts and changes through time. Booger finds comfort in the obsession that the art-form demands, while also discovering freedom in the ability to visually communicate his creative thoughts through his design process. Though its hard to identify the significance in the images Booger is drawn to; he finds himself trying to adopt the same energy within his art.
