How it makes me feel
Tattoos are a form of art and like all art it gives me great satisfaction. When I’m working on a piece – it’s meditational. For me it’s about the work of art and how I can draw it to the best of my ability. It’s about trying to tell the story and give it scope, not to exaggerate it but to give it life, to give it meaning.
Passion and skill
Artists are passionate yes, but I truly believe passion alone will not make you or your work better. You have to constantly try to do better, work at developing your skill and the skill of others when you have the chance. My brother molded me, but he never told me what to do, he guided me and let me follow and develop my own style, that is why he is as good as he is. I follow all good artists, admire their work and try to learn as much as I can from them. As an artists I believe that we have to admire all things that are beautifully crafted. Look around, the greatest artist is Mother Nature, look at how beautiful her work is. All artists have drawn inspiration from her, she has molded all artists and she has inspired me in my work.
Style, specialty and signatures
I love to work on shading art, bio mechanicals, tribal and maori. Each time I start to work on a tattoo I zone out of the hustle and bustle of the world around me. For me, during that time it’s me and the tattoo, what I can do with it and what elements I should bring out. It’s a simple life and bring me endless joy.
