I'm an a award winning custom tattoo artist working at a tattoo shop in Darwen, Lancashire called The Swallows Nest Tattoo. I have a great love of art and tattoo is one of my forms of art choice. My main goal is to make people happy and proud to wear their tattoo as a piece of art while improving my tattoos and designs for as long as I can.
Before I started doing custom tattoos I studied art and practices of tattoo while also learning the history of tattoo. I have worked as a freelance graphic designer for many years so putting together a custom tattoo design is second nature to me. I can make a custom tattoo design either digitally or by hand through most forms including drawing, painting etc. Drop me a message if you want a custom tattoo by a tattoo artist who cares. Myself and the tattoo studio in Darwen is approved and registered with Blackburn with Darwen local authority and I/we follow a strict hygiene protocol as approved by the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health. A certifcate is available to view at the tattoo studio alternatively you can view it online for your peace of mind. I am also certified to tattoo in Liverpool and Sefton. I occasionally do guest spots at the Liverpool tattoo studio The Swallows Nest Liverpool I have also undertaken further courses in hygeine and safety I always strive to improve both artistically and any other ways I can.
I'm lucky enough to have my own tattoo studio giving me the flexibility to work what hours the hours I want. I will always try to make time for your custom tattoo.
I'm a custom tattoo artist based in Darwen and do tattoo guest spots in Liverpool check my social pages for dates when I do this area. I cover all styles of tattoo and have a great desire to be the best I can be. I started tattooing many years ago but the time wasn't right for me as I felt i still needed to learn other aspects of life before I committed my life to tattoo. After doing a range of jobs, travelling and life experiences I feel I have learned a great deal that has helped me as a person and that will benefit my tattoo career. I have decided to learn this great art form again trying my hand at all styles of tattoo and creating my own unique tattoo style. I have a passion for trash polka tattooing, realism tattoos, black & grey tattoos, portrait tattoos, blackwork tattoos and traditional tattoos. I also enjoy doing the old traditional tattoos. I have been a Freelance Web Designer & Developer and a very accomplished graphic designer for many years now which has been a great help in my tattoo design process. I also sell art in the form of portraits and acrylic artwork. I am very happy to design custom one off tattoos for you of which you will have a unique design tailored to your interests.
