I was born in 1982, and from a young age I wanted to follow the family trend of being a graphic designer. Having graduated University, I went on to be a freelance designer based in London and Manchester. The lack of creative freedom lead me to make a career change. This is when I came across the opportunity to become a tattoo apprentice. I started tattooing in 2011, finding my experience in the design industry very useful in the tattooing process. My love of clean and complex line work has allowed me to develop a distinctive style, which is heavily influenced by Indian and Asian styles, particularly henna inspired pieces. In more recent times I have developed this into my own style of abstract and water colour pieces which are really fun! My clients enjoy my friendly and approachable attitude and I love to discuss ideas and embrace the input of both my clients and my colleagues. My positive reputation as a tattoo artist is increasing with many returning clients, and I hope for a long and prosperous time in the industry as a tattooist and an artist.
