What first attracted you to the tattoo industry?

Self expression. It was this safe place to be you. Be you completely, authentically and without judgement.

Where do you draw your inspiration from? 

I’m inspired by strong female artists. Although our industry is no longer as male dominated as it was, there are still challenges we as female artists face each day. I follow local and international female artists closely and find their approach, client interaction and their work ethic inspiring.

What style of tattoo do you enjoy creating the most, and why?

Handpokes! They are so much fun to create as it’s the ultimate labour of love. It’s amazing what can be achieved without the machine. Give me anything with fine details or bold lines and I’m happy.

Tattoo Shop: Outcast Tattoos 818

What first attracted you to the tattoo industry?

Miami Ink (TV show) caught my attention whilst I was still in school, and then just the aspect that it is an art-form that can change someone’s life forever.

What do you do to ensure you keep progressing as an artist?

Always challenge yourself! There’s always room for growth, never get comfortable. Always find ways to make what you’re pushing out, better than the last.

What style of tattoo do you enjoy creating the most, and why?

Black and Grey Realism, because there is no limit to how real you can make something appear on skin. I’m pushing to get to a point where my tattoos look so real that they can even talk back [laughs], not possible, but you get my point.
