4 year apprenticeship
Dotwork, strong linework, i draw everything by hand so i know they are completely original, i use references for animals ect.
Tattoo Freeze in Telford (where i live) Ink&Iron Staffordshire Tattoo Gathering
In Someink Different, Telford
My favourites are Jonny Firth for dark realism, Kristopher Taylor for mandala/dotwork and he lovely girl i work with Megan Owen for Colour Neo Trad
If its on the hands, neck, face or head...make sure that the job they have is willing to allow it haha! total deal breaker
i started collecting them myself and loved the process of it, fortunately the artist who did mine had a vacancy for an apprenticeship and i was so excited! I started wayyyy at the bottom and it took 3 years til i was allowed to tattoo but i didnt care! So i am very greatful to him for that.
i love nature and animals, so i usually put organic patterns in some of my work. I also love wood carving and the veins/knots in wood too so i usually do that in skulls.
I love dotwork mostly, i try and sneak it in absolutely every tattoo i do haha!
I wasnt to do a full back mandala/mehndi piece but i nedd someine willing to sit at least a day to get it properly started
