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.

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.
