Give us some insight into how you became a full time tattoo artist?

I decided to approach the tattoo industry the unconventional way of teaching myself, even though I was aware that this was not the right way of doing things. So, while completing my studies I tattooed part time from my own little studio at home. It was only in my seventh year that I joined Sleight Of Hand Tattoos and four months down the line decided to open up Descriptive Art Collective with Ted Flinstxne. It was quite the unconventional journey, but I’m happy to be where I am.

What drives you?
Always aiming to improve with each tattoo and to hopefully end up on an international platform.

Which style of tattoo to you enjoy creating?

Black and grey realism and portraiture. Reason being, I find it to be the hardest to execute and I get a feeling of satisfaction knowing that I can get close to duplicating the real deal.
