I first met Mark whilst he was working at the Brighton show this year and I was pleasantly surprised at his style of tattooing and artwork.
nterestingly, Mark has clearly had some influences from the current school of graphical tattoos combined with realism and colour work that are in the spotlight these days. Guys like Simone and Volko from Buena Vista Tattoo Club and Lionel Fahy have set new trends on this path but Mark has forged his own distinct style with his graphical and often 'tongue in cheek' tattoo style.
OK, Fill US IN ON WHAT YOUR EARLIEST MEMORIES OE TATTOOS ARE? WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START TATTOOING AND WHEN DID YOU START AND WHERE?
Already at the age of 4,1 started drawing; it always inspired me to draw three-dimensional pictures. Tattooing is for me a high form of art, giving each piece a unique approach. It all started about a year and a half ago for me in a little studio in Belgium, close to the German/ Dutch boarder. A friend of mine taught me all I had to know in a relatively short time.
