What inspired you to become a tattoo artist?
I wanted to do something different and I found tattooing quite different from all other professions. I first saw tattoos in a magazine, and was fascinated to say the least. The fascination turned into an obsession after I got my first tattoo and then I wanted to do it and not just get it.
Have you ever taken formal art training from a younger age or are you self-taught?
I’m a self-trained artist and travelled all across the world to work at different shops and to attend tattoo conventions. My limbs bear the signs of my trials, beginning with the ambigram on my left hand which read both Devil and Angel. There was no looking back. My trials soon extended to my father, friends, their friends, and beyond..
From where are your personal art and designs inspired?
My early inspiration was Bob Tyrrell, when I started tattooing his work struck me the most because of his flawless realism and that is why my work has taken the direction towards realism and portraits.
Which body parts are you most comfortable making a tattoo on?
As an artist, there couldn’t be a better canvas than the human body and I’m comfortable tattooing almost all body parts.
What are your biggest challenges as a tattoo artist?
After doing portraits and realism for more than a decade and not drawing so much I think I still have the scope to do better in illustrative and custom tattoo but finding time to draw is a challenge especially when I have a 2.5 years old son.
