Give us some insight into how you became a full time tattoo artist?

My mother actually suggested I look into getting an apprenticeship. I was familiar with getting tattoos but I had never actually thought of pursuing it as a career, but it turned out to be the best thing I could have ever done.

What does the tattoo industry mean to you?

For me, it means everything. Being able to do something every day that sets your soul on fire, where you can be yourself and create art, sometimes even help somebody through something, I can’t see myself doing anything else, and I wouldn’t give this industry up for anything or anybody.

Which style of tattoo to you enjoy creating?

I love to do illustrative, fine detail, black and grey semi realism work the most. Anything that is high attention to detail.

Give us some insight into how you became a full time tattoo artist?

Hard work and a tone of dedication. What started as my first after school job in 2010, tattooing turned out to be my ultimate calling, I’ll probably spend my life mastering it.

What attracts you to the tattoo industry?

How our tattooing changes the lives of the people we work on, it breaks away their normal one prick at a time.

Which style of tattoo to you enjoy creating?

I enjoy geometric and blackwork tattooing most, it just works in my head. Big and bold, tones of contrast.
