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

I  was working as an illustrator at a Johannesburg agency, I decided the agency life wasn’t for me and I sought out an apprenticeship with Brent Goudie, who was tattooing me at the time. I apprenticed under Brent for about a year and then continued to work with him as a junior tattooer. He was an amazing mentor and definitely gave me a solid foundation to become the artist I am today.

What were some of the hardest things to learn when you first started out?

Patience was a big one. I had to really learn to take my time to learn another new skill. I was also very introverted at the time and had to learn to be more of a people person as having a good relationship with your clients is a very important part of being a good tattooer.

Which style of tattoo to you enjoy creating?

Anything illustrative or sketchy. I love drawing and tattooing subject matter involving flowers, girls and animals, cats especially. I prefer doing mostly black work but colour every now and then is also a fun time.

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

I started rather unconventionally for my time, but more commonly found in today, coming up as a self-taught artist. My first shop I worked at was Sleight of Hand with Leigh Soulink, later moving onto More Than Hype with Baked, and finally opening up shop with the best black and grey artist in Cape Town, Ricardo da Silva.

What are some of the pieces you are most proud of creating?

I’m so proud of so many of the tattoos I do so choosing one is a bit tough. There was one in particular that I couldn’t believe I managed to pull off. It was a double exposure portrait and it had some city lights in the background. I felt that to be a very technically good tattoo.

Which style of tattoo to you enjoy creating?

Lettering tattoos are by far my favourite. I simply love the art of calligraphy and penmanship, and tattooing allows me to borrow some of its techniques.
