When did you first get into doing tattoos, and what was that whole process like for you? I didn't get my first tattoo till I was 19 but I was instantly hooked, had a lot of work done over the next few years and soaked up the tattoo world like a sponge, by the time I was 22 I had to learn how to do it. I had always been pretty good at art and had recently finished a few years in Art college so tattooing was just another medium to work in. I started tattooing at home which is the worst way to start but this was 14 years ago, things were different. The whole process was scary, I had no mentor so I had to learn everything myself. Nobody would give me any info so stuff like needle soldering and stencil making, stuff that went on behind closed doors I had to learn for myself by trial and error.
