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

I started working part time at Wildfire Tattoos in 1995. I was strictly a cleaner when I started, it turned into an apprenticeship as I proved my competence. I used to make needles, scrub tubes and draw up client designs for 5 years before I started tattooing customers.

What does the tattoo industry mean to you?

The tattoo industry is a way to make a living by putting your heart into art. I am grateful for tattooing every day. Tattoos are magical, industry means to create, and we get paid to make magic. What could be better than that?!

Which style of tattoo to you enjoy creating?

The reality is that I enjoy the variety of the work that I do. The simple answer would be black etching, line work, but life and tattooing are too complicated for simple answers.

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

I was always very interested in art in general from a very young age and as I got older I became pretty obsessed tattooing in all aspects. It took me about two years and many different ventures until I finally landed my self an apprenticeship, which is where I learnt the basics of my craft and over years have managed to progress to where I am today.

What does the tattoo industry mean to you?

This industry means a ton to me. It has literally given me a sustainable career, which I well and truly love and care about.

Which style of tattoo to you enjoy creating?

I definitely have a strong base which stems from traditional American tattooing, but as my style has developed over the years I think I’ve picked up a bit of a neo-traditional look to my tattoos.
