What have been some of the highlights of your career so far?
Highlights would definitely include the traveling aspect of the career. You can take your work anywhere in the world. I often travel to Cape Town and Johannesburg and am hoping to take that overseas soon.

What style of tattoo do you enjoy doing the most and why?
It’s always black work. I love to do esoteric inspired pieces, illustrative pieces, encyclopaedia textbook illustration inspired pieces. Usually I just have the outline/ concept sketch and I free-hand all the detail and shading in, as I work, to create an original piece and allow a form of artists freedom.

How do you like to make sure you keep progressing as an artist?
I’m always following other artist’s work and their progress, trying to learn as much as I can from everyone I come across. It’s important to stay inspired. I experiment with as many art forms as I can – from painting to sketching, digital illustrations, all the way to pottery, to keep me busy and to keep my mind open to other art forms.
