How would you describe your word in three words.

Unapologetic, heart-felt, spiritual.

When did you realise that you wanted to be an artist?

I’m not sure it was ever a conscious decision or desire. As a small child I was always creative, expressive and (for better or worse) existed in a slightly different world from ‘the norm’.

I had an overwhelming urge to communicate and exercise demons through creativity, I guess it was inevitable that I would find myself in a creative line of work.

What music inspires you when working?

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds have been a constant influence since my early teenage years. I find music can paint such vivid pictures and tangible emotions so incredibly personal to whoever is listening.

I couldn’t imagine being so creatively free without music as a catalyst.

Which other artists influence you?

I’ve always admired Alphones Mucha for his beautiful celebrations of the female figure. Similarly I love how Tamara de Lempicka’s paintings have an unsettling edge to her work. I’m ashamed to say I don’t spend enough time seeking out new influences.

What are your goals for the future?

I’d love to get an article in a tattoo magazine. But mostly, earning the respect of other tattooists who I admire would be amazing. That, and having enough business to keep doing this for a many more years would be great.

If you weren’t a tattooist, what job would you do?

I should have been a mechanic. Less social skills required!

Any last words?

Thank you for this opportunity!
