I have always had an interest in art and tattoos for as long as I can remember. I remember drawing on almost everything i owned as a child trying to find the perfect outlet for the artist inside me. As a teenager my eyes were opened to the world of tattooing and i fell in love immediately.
I've been tattooing since 2008 . I enjoy all types and styles, my preferred style is black and grey realism portraits. I love the challenge of doing portraits with high contrast levels,
I’ve been here at Inkcognito since 2014 and it’s the perfect place for me right now.
I worked as a commission artist for 10 years before beginning my tattoo journey in 2015, (although I have always drawn from as young as I was able to). I primarily focused on portraiture and conceptual work before becoming a tattooist and still maintain this in my work on skin.
In 2013 I gained a First BA Honours Degree in Fine Art, It was following this I realised that I needed art at the forefront of my everyday working life. I immersed myself in the tattoo industry and haven’t looked back since.
I love Black and Grey realism and Illustrative realism but enjoy all styles. I really enjoy geometric (being slightly compulsive helps) and the challenge of colour and bold traditional tattoos.
