SO a lot has been going on!
As of August 21st i started working at the brand new Black Hope Tattoo, set up by my good friends! Still located in the heart of historic Colchester!
At the recent Liverpool Tattoo Convention i managed to win my "Horror" duel against Joshua Beatson, a big thanks to Joshua for taking part, the organisers of The Liverpool Tattoo Convention and everyone who voted!
I'm honoured to say that i have artwork featured in "Welcome to Haddonfield II" a Halloween themed exhibition taking place at SugarMynt Gallery in South Pasadena, LA, USA.
"Welcome To Haddonfield II" our annual Halloween exhibition celebrating the landmark house used in the 1978 film located right next door to the gallery."
If your local, swing by and check it out, all pieces are for sale!
I'd like to take this chance to say a big thank you to the guys at Welcome to Horror Land for interviewing me recently. The interview has now been uploaded so feel free to check it out!
Im very excited to say that i will be working the London Film and Comic Con in July and Weekend Of Hell this december. Both conventions are taking place in London and are worth a visit for anyone interested in pop culture / horror memorabilia.
The new year is now in full swing and I'm back at the studio!
I am going to be working fewer conventions this year and travelling much less meaning that getting an appointment booked in at the studio will be much easier, already Saturdays are booking up fast. I'd love to work on larger scale pieces this year, maybe a backpiece or torso, last year i managed to start and finish a handful of really cool sleeve tattoos, in various styles.
Also this year, for the right projects i am willing to open up some of my days off, if I'm into it and your commited to booking the necessary amount of sittings this allows us to get a lot of progress made in a much quicker time frame.
Thankyou to all my customers from 2016, and all who contact me this year.
I'm incredible honoured to be working The Tattoo Collective, the new convention from Miki Vialetto and Tattoo Life magazine, showcasing the best of British and Irish tattooing. I cant wait to work the show, im already fully booked for it, a big thankyou to my three customers who filled this convention within minutes of me annoucning i was working it.
I'm incredibly proud and honoured to say that i am working at this years London Tattoo Convention. Im splitting days with the talented Leigh Oldcorn, my appointment is filled with a colour portrait tattoo of Spawn, the Todd Mcfarlane comic / movie character.
I've just returned home from the Transylvania Tattoo Expo, i cant thank the organisers and all the artists i spoke to enough for such a great weekend, a great convention with a brilliant atmosphere! Next up on my travel schedule is the Cardiff Tattoo and Toy Convention in Cardiff,Wales. I've got two very cool bookings for custom tattoos this convention that I'm really looking forward too, I'm also going to have some new badges and other new merch. If your at the show, then plese swing by and say hi!
I've just returned home from the Transylvania Tattoo Expo in Sibiu, Romania. Its a great convention organised by a great crew of people who couldnt help enough with anything needed.
I was incredible lucky to recieve 3rd place Best Realistic for a fox tattoo cover up i worked on the first day of the convention! Its a show I'll definitely be working again next year!
Brand new stickers with an 80s VHS feel. A6 in size, come grab some, stick them around and show me the craziest place you can hit up with them!
A big thank you to everyone at Total Tattoo Magazine for featuring some of my oil paintings in this months "Private View" feature. If your not already grab yourself a subscription to Total Tattoo Magazine, they genuinely care about tattooing and cover conventions and artists worldwide!
With 2015 now over its time to look ahead to the new year and make plans for how to make the most of the time we have. As always I'll be grinding away at Cosmic Tattoo in Colchester, Essex, UK. Working alongside a great team who inspire me daily, please check these guys out for some great work; Leigh Oldcorn, Arran Burton, Sim Abbott, Aynjjal Chaos and Pinky Darling.
I hope to be able to carry on focusing on portrait tattoos and especially dark and horror based tattoos. Creating my own monsters to deliver a completly custom tattoo or replicating a movie icon with a portrait tattoo.
My travel schedule is already up on the page with more guestspots to be added soon hopefully!

I was very lucky to recently see the incredible Ghost in Munich, Germany. The only band ive seen where taking part in an unholy communion is encouraged. I would love to do some Ghost related tattoos, portrait tattoos of the Unholy Ghouls, Papa Emeritus I, II or III or any Ghost inspired ideas.
Also dont forget to check out my Art gallery to see some Ghost inspired original art.
