Your favourite tattoo you’ve ever done
How long have you been a tattoo artist and how did you get into tattooing?
I have been tattooing professionally for around 2 years, and got into tattooing because I have always drawn, and created art since I can remember; and wanted to offer my unique style and ideas, which I didn’t see much of at the time… (and still, don’t in this area at least!)
Plus artists didn’t seem bothered in making art- more about making money, which is sadly the case still, which paves the way for passionate artists.
But there are so many more I feel influenced by because I do a lot of styles at the moment, which confuses me (easily done)
Most painful inking?
