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

I have always been very artistic and art has been my favourite thing to do for as long as I can remember. I did my apprenticeship in Durban and since the day I started, I fell in love with tattooing.

What does the tattoo industry mean to you?

Tattooing to me isn’t an industry, it’s more of a family. It’s a culture.

Which style of tattoo to you enjoy creating?

I really enjoy black and grey realism and micro realism because that’s the style I used to draw growing up. It has come more naturally to me.

Tattoo Shop: Trade Mark Tattoo

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

In 2012 I found myself managing a tattoo shop, now known as Trade Mark Tattoo. Through managing and exposure to the industry, I learned about Hand Poked Tattoos, and I was instantly hooked.

What does the tattoo industry mean to you?

Without it I wouldn’t be where I am now, and I really love where I am. It motivates me to be better and allows me to meet people from all over the world.

Which style of tattoo to you enjoy creating?

I specialise in Hand Pokes tattoos. I really enjoy doing bugs, animal heads and pattern-work, any image done in a bold simple style is great.
