I draw on paper and people.
I work at a fully insured and licensed private tattoo studio based in Bristol. I have been tattooing since October 2012. Specialising in ornamental and blackwork, i love to tattoo most styles including watercolour, traditional and trash polka. I custom draw up every design I tattoo because I think it’s important to wear a tattoo that is unique like you are. I carry out a vegan tattoo procedure, for more information on the products i use click here.
My journey started in Greece where i spent the summer of 2007 working as a Henna Artist. It was on a small island in the Aegean Sea that sparked my passion for drawing on people. As a Henna Artist i have worked at festivals, events and along the Cornish coastline during Summer seasons. It was through being a Henna Artist that i found myself making a natural progression to Tattooing. The texture of the skin as a canvas and challenges of the bodies contours as well as connecting with the people i tattoo, make me eternally grateful for being able to do what i do for a living. There is something compelling about creating art to then watch it walk out the door.
As well as tattooing i also write for Inkluded tattoo blog. Inkluded founder Beccy Rimmer has created an online community with the idea of bringing people together through tattooing, raising awareness about the craft and exploring the tattoo industry as a whole. I have been honoured to have been asked to contribute towards projects such as Inked Palette exhibition, T-Shirts by Tattoo Artists and the Inkluded Zine.
In my spare time I blog about tattooing, creativity, motherhood and adventures. I love to spend time with my family, practise yoga, surf along the South-West coastline, dabble in photography and go on adventures. My soul can be found where the land meets the sea.
