Ghostimage – The Ink Spot

J D Kenny (gfhostimage_artwork) who also goes by GhostImage is a tattoo artist based at The Ink Spot in Stoke on Trent. You may recognise the name from last year when we did an interview with him, which you can read here. J D is a super talented artist who offers a variety of styles, however, he does a lot of realism and blackwork pieces which are always jaw-dropping. Ghostimage tends to bring a spooky twist to his work, with creatures, clowns, voodoo dolls and famous faces within the horror genre making regular appearances.

Clarissa J Docksey- New Image Tattoo Studio

Clarissa J Docksey (CJ) who is based at New Image Tattoo in Stoke caught our eye, with a portfolio full of different styles, including dainty linework pieces to gorgeous dot work mandalas. CJ who is only a junior artist has even has done some strikingly bold colourful pieces, which are phenomenal.
