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

I have always been very artistic and art has been my favourite thing to do for as long as I can remember. I did my apprenticeship in Durban and since the day I started, I fell in love with tattooing.

What does the tattoo industry mean to you?

Tattooing to me isn’t an industry, it’s more of a family. It’s a culture.

Which style of tattoo to you enjoy creating?

I really enjoy black and grey realism and micro realism because that’s the style I used to draw growing up. It has come more naturally to me.
