How long have you been tattooing since?

2010

How would you explain your style?

I work mostly with patterns, mandalas, dotwork, mehndi and geo. I also love doing flowers!

What advice do you have for people looking to get tattooed?

Research your artist! Make sure the person you chose is working in a style you love. Don’t ask an artist who specialises in pattern for a realistic portrait. It’s a bit like skiing Monet to do you a Picasso ;-)

What inspires you?

The world around me, fabrics in the V&A museum, tiles in Marrakesh, churches in Malta and Californian landscapes.

What do you look forward to?

I love when my customers want me to create them something unique in my style.
