Give us some insight into how you became a full time tattoo artist?
I started rather unconventionally for my time, but more commonly found in today, coming up as a self-taught artist. My first shop I worked at was Sleight of Hand with Leigh Soulink, later moving onto More Than Hype with Baked, and finally opening up shop with the best black and grey artist in Cape Town, Ricardo da Silva.
What are some of the pieces you are most proud of creating?
I’m so proud of so many of the tattoos I do so choosing one is a bit tough. There was one in particular that I couldn’t believe I managed to pull off. It was a double exposure portrait and it had some city lights in the background. I felt that to be a very technically good tattoo.
Which style of tattoo to you enjoy creating?
Lettering tattoos are by far my favourite. I simply love the art of calligraphy and penmanship, and tattooing allows me to borrow some of its techniques.
