Tattoo Shop: Sin on Skin Durban

Explain your passion for the trade?

Tattooing has given me and taught me so much about creativity, perseverance and old fashioned hard work. There is no better feeling than seeing a customer’s vision come to life on their body, and seeing the smile that comes with that.

Give us some insight into your shop, Sin on Skin, and the vibe it brings?

I have always wanted to maintain a friendly, welcoming atmosphere at the shop, where absolutely anyone is welcome with their ideas or designs. It’s a fun, relaxed environment, usually with a lot of loud music and laughter.

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

I really love doing American Traditional because of the old school tattooing style that goes with it. I also enjoy doing freehand Polynesian work because of the creative freedom it offers me.

Tattoo Artist: Tarryn Brummage

Tattoo Shop: Ting’s Tattoo Studio

What first sparked your interest and passion for the tattoo industry? 

One of my closest friends got into the industry and I got to see all the new things she was learning with her art and how tattooing is just another medium for an artist. She inspired me to get an apprenticeship, to grow my art and even to start tattooing.

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

I have a very strong passion for realism as it’s something I’ve always specialised in with drawing and painting, and I strive to create the most realistic tattoos that there is. I find it a challenge to create something so life-like and I love the challenge.

Where do you draw your inspiration from?

Sometimes from other artists and sometimes inspiration just hits me like a train, out of nowhere. So sometimes I go out looking for inspiration from other people and other times it finds me, showing me the small things in life. It’s very erratic and unpredictable.
