I love drawing a style before i tattoo it. Being an art focused tattooist outside of the tattooing craft, it gives me the opportunity to develop knowledge, and push the boundaries, learning lessons, before going about the subject on skin.
I have been drawing Japanese tattoos since the beginning of my career, i am a big fan of Shige. He is a tattoo artist from Japan, who completely broke the rules of Japanese tattoos. Japanese tattoos were very traditional, every one used to stick to the rules. And Shige came along and changed all that, making Japanese tattoos more realistic.
So i like to bring a bit of realism when i approach a Japanese tattoo and drawing.
I have been tattooing Japanese tattoos in Leeds for the past 10 years, i will upload new ans past Japanese tattoos i have done over my career of 13 years.
I love drawing and tattooing Japanese Geisha, they look calm and graceful.
Japanese Tattoos have an amazing way of flowing in the body like no other style does.
