I began tattooing professionally in 1998 in my native England and have been fortunate enough to work at and learn from many amazing studios and their artists, including Evil from the Needle, New Wave of London, and Deluxe Tattoo in Chicago. I now reside at Slave to the Needle after relocating to the USA in 2020.


My style is fairly varied yet based on informed principles of longevity and clear composition that extends beyond a fresh photo and looks more to the years ahead. My strengths lie in bold, sharp lines, solid colors and high contrast shading, classic traditional, Japanese, Bio-Mech imagery that lives in the realm of the fantastic and slightly dark fringes of our minds.


If I click with the subject matter and you trust my interpretation, then I can make a tattoo for you that we could both be proud of.
