Tattoo Studio bookings now open for 2023!
I have been tattooing for over 12 years. I’ve always had the desire to become a tattoo artist. I had a life changing experience when my best friend died, I decided life was too short for compromises and committed myself to pursuing my dream. The reward for this effort has been the opening of my very own studio (Love tattoos) and it has gone strength to strength since 2015.
I enjoy all styles of tattooing, the ones I like most are the really challenging ones! I’m always pushing my boundaries and learning more every single day. I am currently working on a Japanese leg sleeve that’s really allowing me to do a style I love in a way that speaks to everything I love about traditional Japanese tattooing. Its been a joy to see the project come to life over the last year or so.
Why come to Love Tattoos? You’ll be welcomed with a smile and a chat… definitely a LOT of chatting!
NO DESIRE TO RETIRE!, I’ll be here until I die and fall off the chair!
I’ve been involved with the tattoo industry for many years! I started my training around 2015 at a studio in Basingstoke, I ended up at Love Tattoos in 2018 after an introduction with the charismatic Mr Hawkins.
What got me into tattooing? Art! Creativity! Deep personal longing for acceptance! I was always somewhat directionless but art always kept me interested and challenged. I have loved tattoo and tattoo centric art for over 20 years. After a miserable parade of managerial roles for various large retailers I had a mental breakdown, I found myself stripped of any reason not to pursue a career in art - so I went all in on tattooing. Tattooing literally saved my life, my sanity, and my marriage. It wasn’t easy but I find myself blessed for the effort involved.
I favour more feminine pieces and an illustrational style, however I am also very good with cover up tattoos. I do a bit of everything and love tattooing in general so everything is fair game.
So, what's my favourite tattoo project so far? It's hard to say, I’m such a scatter brain the answer would always change. In general the cover ups are the most rewarding, the joy of giving someone something they love instead of whatever was there is almost addictive.
Love Tattoos is my forever home. Being here has improved every aspect of who I am. Glynn took me under his wing and taught me to be not only a better artist, but a better person in general. As someone who was drowning in a sea of anxiety and depression, Love Tattoos was the lifeline that saved me. I’m not sure I’d be here today without Glynn and his studio. Love Tattoos is a truly unique environment of acceptance and positivity. I think Love Tattoos is incredibly special. We provide a welcoming environment to all people regardless of race, age, sex, religion or favourite biscuit. We pride ourselves on spending time with our clients to make sure they walk away with something they truly love.
My moto:Live long and prosper ;-)
