How old are you?
Where are you from?
What do you do?
How many tattoos do you have?
ermmm……depends how you count them!
What was your first tattoo?
the Life/Death ambigram on my lower back. It was done 3 days after my 18th birthday in the studio I was working in at the time
What is your favourite tattoo?
it’s always my next one! haha! It’s so hard to pick a favourite, my large thigh piece and my most recent one, which was done 3 days before the shoot (the mandala on the palm of my hand) are the ones I would choose as my favourites right now.
I’ll know it when I see it! I’m in the process of having some laser removal done to make way for more. I don’t regret any of them, but I plan on re-vamping a lot of my older ones, just to neaten them up and make them better.
Artists you’ve had work by?
Mainly artists I’ve worked alongside in tattoo studios, I think that other than one studio, and waiting to be tattooed by some of my current workmates, I’ve been tattooed by every artist I’ve worked alongside! Notable contributions from:
Kev Turner, Steel Paintbrush (RIP!) in Durham
Martin Robson, Couleys in Dunston (when he worked in Durham)
Lauren Stephens & Sonny Joe Williamson, Skins & Needles in Middlesbrough (which is where I currently work)
