I have been tattooing for the past 5 years after finishing a 3 year training course. I was lucky to be trained by old school artists, 'if you don’t get it right I’m going to throw my lunch at you and then you're going to get more lunch' those sort of artists so when you finally get the drawing right and the cleaning right it feels so much more worthwhile. It’s that sort of mentality that has helped me push my tattooing career everyday trying to better myself. I now work at Rising Phoenix Tattoo in Leighton Buzzard. It’s been a tough transition from the comfort of the last studio I worked at but it’s really paying off now working on my own. I get to work with so many different people and have total freedom in my art. I can’t imagine every doing something else, tattooing has become my life and passion and I am very thankful for where I am today.
