I feel blessed to have made a career in Tattooing, making friends with clients and colleagues throughout the world. I have learned so much from travelling and meeting like minded souls, and this allows me me to progress forward in my work. I hope to to continue to accumulate more experience and knowledge and so keep life interesting and fun.
I started my tattooing career in Welingborough, Northhamptonshire back in 1990, Then in 1993 to Taurus Tattoo Studio, in Newark, Nottinghamshire. 2001 -2002 At Sapphire Dragon Studio, Sherwood, Nottingham. and after a short stint at Feline Studio, Sheffield. In 2003 settled at Tradition 180 Studio in Derby. Later the shop name was changed to "Lifetime Tattoos" and worked there till I opened Epona in December 2014.
I have also worked at Tattoo conventions both here and abroad, including, Berlin, Vienna, Florida, Hamburg, also Dunstable, London, Brighton,Edinburgh and so many more in all points North South East and west. My favourite styles of tattooing include fine detail, colour and black and grey, realistic, oriental, portraits and wildlife. I specialise in cover-up work also. I like to involve the client in the basic conception of the Tattoo design, making sure each project is tailored to that individuals requirements. This usually involves a consultation either by email, or in person prior to the actual appointment.
A little patience beforehand usually reaps better results, and results in a happy client.
