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.

What first attracted you to the industry, and what drives your passion for it now? 

Initially what pulled me to the industry was seeing the versatility in tattooing. I had watched many artists create masterpieces, it blew my mind and lit a fire in me. Now I’d say what drives my passion is the constant desire to improve as an artist, as well as meeting people from all walks of life.

Give us some insight into your new shop, Autumn Tattoo Studio?

We wanted to create an environment that better suits who we are as people, as well as artists. Our studio is private, relaxing, and you are surrounded by imaginary from our different backgrounds. A long term goal would be to create a place where artists can come guest. This is important to me as so many other studio’s have taken me in and helped me grow.

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

One of my favourite things about tattooing is the fact that one medium can create so many different styles. I mostly do animal portraits as I have a fascination with trying to create texture and detail, however I also love the freedom of watercolour. More importantly I think it may be too soon in my career for me to specialise in any one thing, there is still way too much to learn.
