What made you want to become a Tattoo Artist?
I wanted to become a tattoo artist because creating art that someone will wear for the rest of their life is a fulfilling experience.
Where or who do you turn to for inspiration?
I source my inspiration from life. I love to explore new places and learn new things. And James Jean.
Tell us about your experience training as a Tattoo Artist? Who made the largest impact on your artistic progress?
My mentor Master Shark has made the largest impact on my skills as a tattoo artist. He has shared knowledge and skills that would have taken years to discover on my own, if ever!! Transitioning from home studio to shop has been the most important aspect of my development as a tattoo artist. Hon tattoo shop allows artists to exchange and share ideas, thoughts, skills etc. It literally is the best place for growth.
How many Tattoos do you have & which is your favourite?
I have several, all but one were done myself for practice.
What advice would you give to an artist just starting out?
My advice is find an apprenticeship immediately. The time you’ll save learning is invaluable. And in my opinion, drawing is just as important, if not more, than tattooing itself.
