Tattoo Artist
24 Sheffield, UK

I was born January 19th in London England. I am a tattoo artist by trade, a creative spirit by nature, a chronic doodler by design and a modest scholar at heart. Vegan, engaged to Oliver Skyes on Christmas day. He is part of the band Bring Me the Horizons. You guys should really speak to him!

Losing Oliver, spiders
FAVORITE FOOD AND DRINK

OCCUPATION IF YOUR WEREN’T TATTOOING
Tour Manager for Bring me The Horizon. I would be such a roadie
YOUR PERFECT DAY WOULD CONSIST OF
This is a tough one because I feel like the honest answer is a bit too cheeky to put online! haha. Obviously being somewhere beautiful and warm with my favorite people would rule, but sometimes when I wake up in my big fat bed with a totally clear mind and my stupid little dog, serving as a living breathing hot water bottle, there is literally nothing better. Throw in some vegan banana oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and a doodling sesh, and I’m game! Jet skis are awesome too
WHERE DID YOU START
I was always very academic-focused in school, so I think everyone – my parents and myself included – assumed I would go into something pretty different haha! I toyed with the idea of being a clinical psychologist for a while; People fascinate me and my parents are both in the medical field, but my passion has always been doodling in one form or another. I dropped out of John Leggott College when I was 17 to tattoo. I started at Nexus, but most of my career has been when I left with Tom Caine to Holy Mountain Scunthorpe
WHEN DID YOU ESTABLISH YOUR STYLE
Im not actually 100% sure! I feel like in the last year though I’ve really come into my own. I was always quite unsure of myself and I think my work reflected that. I’ve still got a long way to go and I’d like to think I will continually grow and improve and evolve in myself and my work – but I certainly have a lot more confidence in myself now. The less I seem to question things, the more they seem to work! the places I’ve traveled in the last year reflects a lot of my work too – Vietnam was particularly beautiful and inspiring
YOUR INSPIRATION & MOTIVATION
Sometimes days go by where I remain uninspired, then all of a sudden I’ll have a billion ideas at once. I’ve learned it’s best to jot them down right away and come back to them later, to see whether I’m still into it. I’ve also learned to surround myself with people and things that continuously motivate me and make me happy like Grace Neutral she is an inspiration as far as people go. Books and traveling is a massive influence on my work as well. I feel grateful that I’ve managed to see so many places already, and I plan on doing a lot more of that! My mum was amazing when I was little and took me all over the place. I bloody love here
MOST MEMORABLE TATTOO YOU’VE DONE
I think it would have to be the flower of life pattern I did on my friend Plaz. It was about 2 years ago now, I think. After that tattoo, that design literally haunted me. It was so hard to do, yet the most pleasant tattooing experience that I can remember – it helps that he is an awesome dude who had a lot of faith letting me do it! The part it played in the following year of my life was insane. It was everywhere and in everything. It led me to believe that there is no such thing as coincidence and you really do attract things into your existence. Quite literally!
A lot of magic! I’m so incredibly excited and proud of opening my own place Black Stabbath. I’m quite a reserved person and business can so easily break friendships. The tattooing industry can be so competitive and I like to dip out of it a little and do my own thing, this way I’m in no-ones way. It’s not going to be a ‘studio’ as such with all the bells and whistles; I don’t think I’m anywhere near experienced or talented enough to run my own studio. It’s more just my own little private space to create in! I’m also hugely grateful that I have such a supportive partner who gave me the courage to do it in the first place, he really gave me the extra push in the right direction
