What do you enjoy most about being a full time tattoo artist?
to be honest, the smiles on my client’s faces and the compliments I receive after the tattoo is done. Yes it’s a full time job with long hours but not when you love what you do, then it’s no more a job.
What style of tattoo do you enjoy creating the most, and why?
I’ve always been more of a fine-line artist, so I’d say portraits and realism. Practice makes perfect as they say and all I’ve gotta say is watch this space!
Where do you draw your inspiration from?
From other artists, whether they’re starting out or they are long in this game, it makes me humble and want to push to do better.
