BIO




BORN IN PALMERSTON NORTH, MANAWATU, AOTEAROA / NEW ZEALAND. TATTOOING SINCE 1987. I OPENED MY FIRST SHOP IN WELLINGTON ON CUBA STREET.

DURING THE NEXT FEW YEARS I LEARNT A LOT OF WHAT I KNOW FROM TWO MASTER CARVERS AND TA MOKO ARTISTS, TOM BISHOP (WAIKATO / MANIAPOTO- MOTHERS SIDE, AITUTAKI / COOK ISLANDS- FATHERS SIDE) AND RAWIRI (NGATI KAHUNGUNU / NGATI POROU- MOTHERS SIDE, NGAPUHI / TE ARAWA- FATHERS SIDE). WITHOUT THEIR INSPIRATION AND MENTORING I WOULDN'T BE DOING WHAT I DO TODAY. THANK YOU.

I HAVE ALSO HAD THE PLEASURE AND INSPIRING EXPERIENCES OF WORKING WITH TA MOKO ARTISTS INIA TAYLOR III (MOKO INK), TOMMY DOWNS (WELLINGTON) AND MIKE 'E'.

IN THE YEARS FOLLOWING I HAVE DONE A LOT OF TRAVEL, WORKING ALONGSIDE SOME OF THE WORLDS BEST TATTOO ARTISTS. SPENDING TIME WORKING IN PLACES SUCH AS 'INTO YOU' (LONDON) AND TOKYO HARDCORE (JAPAN).
