“Create your own story… be who you want to be no matter what…”
Say hello to Jimmy Scribble, who has created an exclusive design for Inkluded’s online store.
Tell us who you are!
I’m Jimmy Scribble, I tattoo from Black Friars Tattoo House in Carlisle. I have been tattooing for around 3 years.
What kind of art do you strive to create?
I would say my style is fairly unique. I am a freehand lettering artist – I love creating and designing different styles of lettering.
To me, lettering is a form of art just as much as a realistic artwork. A lot of people ask “what does it say”, but I believe that the more illegible it is, the more unique the pieces are to me and my clients.
I am always trying out different styles. As I look back at my pieces over the past three years, they are forever changing. I don’t want to just keep being the same and will always push to be the best I can.
Have you designed art for clothing before?
Intentionally… no! I have to get words and quotes down onto paper first before tattooing, so I am always ‘scribbling’. One day, I drew the words World Famous Inks onto the paper – the brand liked it so much they used it as a design for their t-shirts! I feel so grateful for the opportunities that this industry has given me.
Tell us about the art you have designed for the new Inkluded vests.
Because I am constantly putting pen to paper, I have piles of drawings, and this is one of my pre-drawn designs from a while back. When I was asked to submit a piece for Inkluded, I thought this particular creation fitted perfectly.
As I said before, my styles of lettering are constantly changing, so I had to make a few minor tweaks before it was good to go to the Inkluded team.
This design says all it needs to say… create your own story, be who you want to be no matter what!
Our online store is now closed. We have very few items left in stock and these are being sold through Stag & Raven.
