I have lived in New Zealand since 2013, I am excited to be building a new life in a
beautiful country with such a large influence in the tattoo industry.
I have loved art from a young age and have always had an interest in the tattoo industry.
I spent 3 years back in the UK learning not only about the art and history of tattooing but about
the hygiene and aftercare that comes with it.
I have now been tattooing since 2010 and have gained valuable experience during this time.
I mainly specialise in custom work. I particularly enjoy abstract, geometric work and Pointillism
