How would you sum up the stale of tattooing today?
I think on the whole it is in a good place. There is some really exciting work being done. The standard of the artwork by some artists is so high, it is hard to imagine where it might go from here Tattooing is going so strong that I don't see it stopping anytime in the future. Countnes new to tattooing are embracing it big time 1 have been contacted by tattoo magazines from Singapore and Taiwan wanting to do articles on London Ink. If someone had told me 16 ycurs ago that I would be in a TV show about tattooing No way. I mean no fucking way would I have believed them! It was inconceivable. I think people who have got into it recently have no idea how far-fetched that idea would have been. I am very lucky lo be pan of all this and to be doing the job that I love so much.
Would you say you were born lucky or do you make your own luck?
I don't know. Maybe I have a lucky horse shoe up my arse! /laughing] I have lucked out finding tins place and being able to put together the team that we have here But there is a lot of hard work involved too.
Someone once said 'The harder I work, the luckier I get*...
Couldn't agree more. Tattooing is hard work. You are working all Jjy then drawing until five in the morning... you need to be 100% committed to it.
What would you do If you couldn't be a tattooKt?
Fuck. I don't know! Maybe open a pizzeria or be a ptrate!
