from Heart & Hand Tattoos
If you weren’t a professional tattoo artists, what would you be doing with your life?
I would either be an Architectural Visualiser producing renderings and animations of commercial buildings, or I would have returned back to fine arts, spending days in a studio producing large scale paintings.
How would you best explain the vibe and setup of Heart & Hand Tattoos?
We have a mixed bag of styles readily available for everyone’s tastes! We like to think the studio feels like a boutique hotel lounge which just happens to have a professional tattoo studio set up in it. We have art on the walls by our artists and a few from artists we have met on our travels.
What style of tattoo do you enjoy creating the most and why?
Traditional Japanese tattoos, called Horimono or Wabori, most people refer to it as Irezumi but I think that word is loaded with extra meaning and history, which I cannot claim to be a part of. It is why I became a Tattooer. It is the culture and history behind it that I have been learning about since I was very young. I am humbled by the beauty and depth of meaning this particular tattoo form has and hope to be a credit to its tradition one day.
