At art school I majored in Illustration and Sculpture, experimenting with materials such as wood, metal and glass. Tattooing was always my main objective and through my illustration I have been able to learn and understand different styles and genres becoming a very versatile tattoo artist. I feel lucky to be working with such a talented crew here at Otautahi Tattoo. My main influences are traditional old school, new school and Irezumi. The artists I am currently taking influence by are Shaun Barber (painter and tattooist), Horiren and Lars Uwe.
