What first attracted you to tattoos and the industry?
Ever since I was a child I’ve always had a huge fascination with tattoos, I remember my grandfather coming home with a new tattoo of an old school black panther on his arm and I really thought that this was the most amazing thing I’d ever seen, and wanted a tattoo since then. I was also obsessed with the tattoo reality shows that were on TV and just knew that I wanted to become one of them, even though it’s really nothing like what you see on TV.
What advice would you give someone that’s thinking about getting their first tattoo?
Make sure you’ve done your research on the artist that you would like to get tattooed by, check to see that they’re good at doing the style your looking for. Don’t choose an artist because it’s the cheapest you can find and please listen to your artist when it comes to healing your tattoo, not your friends.
What style of tattoo do you enjoy creating the most, and why?
There’s a few styles I love at the moment. I’ve always been drawn to watercolour tattoos because it can add uniqueness to a tattoo in a fun, playful way by the use of colours. I also really enjoy anything floral, especially with the whip shading technique. I love how you can create different textures and tones.
