Born and raised in London, I was heavily influenced by the vibrant art culture of England's capital city. The emergence of rap music in the early 80's, and the associated graffiti art movements, continued to mold my artistic sensibilities. I have painted, sculpted, carved and sketched my entire life but unlike my siblings (who attended art school), I went on to pursue a PhD in Biomedical Sciences at the prestigious University of Leeds, UK. Having a doctorate degree in the Biomedical Sciences gives me a deeper understanding of the tissue mechanics of the skin and the process of making a beautiful tattoo, which is essential to produce designs that flow with the human anatomy.
Drawing from my experiences growing up within a family of artists, I developed my own artists styles, before turning to the dark side and becoming a tattooer. I prefer blackwork, bold clean lines, dotwork, sacred geometry, henna style and fineline black and grey tattoos. However, I believe tattooing is partnership between the artist and the client. If you have a vision, we can make it a reality.
