OUR TALENTED TATTOO ARTISTS
Learn more about the likes, dislikes and leading influences of our tattoo artists in Chelmsford, Essex.
I kinda got into tattooing by chance, after meeting a top tattooist from Hong Kong while at Art College in London. Later, I went on to work under him and then with him in Hong Kong and at some UK conventions. Throughout my career, I’ve worked in several studios both in London and my hometown of Liverpool.
For me, tattooing is about detail, precision and realism.
Influences: Carlos Torres, Jason Butcher, Khan and Paul Acker to name a few.
Can’t stand: Old school, traditional and tribal designs (I just don’t get it!) and customers who don’t turn up!
Loves: Black and grey, realism, rock and horror and, of course, coffee!
I never really planned on getting into tattoing, it just happened. I was getting tattoed by an artist in London and was curious abut the industry and the techniques needed to develop art onto the skin. I then began tattoing myself with the guidance of my mentor and have been tattoing 8 years since. What I like about tattoing is that you cannot wash it off!
Influences: Mike Judge, John K
Dislike: Typical ‘first time’ tattoos, offensive tattoos, celery
Loves: Garlic and salt. Lots of it!
Top 3 dinner guests: Cher, Fidel Castro, Napolean Dynamite, A Michelin Star Chef.
