What is one thing about your work that most people don't know?
What I don't think that anyone realizes about my hob is that it doesn't define all of me, it is merely one aspect of my life. Because of how we choose to alter our appearance, tattoo artists are often pre-judged and maligned. Even though society appears to be moving into a wider acceptance of tattoos and tattooed people, its opinions of the artists themselves hasn't changed very much. What most people don't realize is that more and more we are educated, hardworking, dedicated, take what we do very seriously and are contributing members of society. I'm proud to be part of the new wave of tattoo artists.
What makes you most proud of the work you do?
Work to me is essential. It's what keeps us as a species going, the idea that we are building up to something. Even if we had no needs to meet, I still believe that humanity would feel the need to progress. As a species, we are the collective whole of our parts, moving forward, progressing and advancing.
