What does the world of tattooing mean to you?
Tattooing is my life, it’s my freedom and expression. It’s given me the opportunity to be myself and help others feel that they can express themselves through tattoos.

What style of tattoo do you enjoy creating the most, and why?
Neo Traditional animal tattoos are my absolute favourite. I love animals and the joy they bring people, seeing people get so stoked with their animal’s tattooed on them forever makes me stoked.

What advice would you give someone wanting to get their first tattoo?
Really think about what you want to get, the size, the placement. Your first tattoo will always have the most meaning to it. Know what style you want to have it done in and when looking for an artist, look at their portfolio more than anything else. Enjoy the experience, it probably won’t be your last [laughs].
