What does the world of tattooing mean to you?
The world of tattooing is a sacred and mysterious place to me. We still do not entirely know when tattooing began or the meanings behind tattooing in ancient cultures, it’s amazing to see how far technology has come and I feel privileged to be part of a new generation of tattoo artists who have amazing tools at our disposal. I will always feel humbled by the years of progression set out by older generations of tattoo artists and wish to positively influence the world of tattooing as much as I can, even if it’s one client at a time.

What style of tattoo do you enjoy creating the most, and why?
I enjoy surrealistic imagery the most, anything weird and out of the ordinary is exciting for me because it evokes a “did I see that right?” reaction out of people. I’m a huge animal lover so any animal imagery is fun to do, as well as sacred geometry

What do you feel have been some of the best evolutions when it comes to equipment and ink in recent years?
I believe using iPads or drawing tablets to design digitally is a huge improvement to the workflow of a tattoo artist. I believe you should still understand and practice traditional drawing mediums but the options for customisation and new near-perfect artworks is a huge advantage. Rotary tattoo machines have also development a lot as they are now much more powerful than they used to be whilst still being gentle on the skin allowing for fine work that won’t cause the client too much skin trauma.
