Yo! My name is Louise and I’m 24. Born and bred in Essex, I’ve been tattooing since 2017 but been in the industry since 2016.
I first was interested in art and tattooing from a young age, having my first (and worst) tattoo done at the age of 14. From school, I went on to study graphic design. I started my tattoo apprenticeship back in 2016 whilst studying at uni and working part time. I realised quickly that Graphic Design was pants and wasn’t what I wanted to do, so in my second year of uni I went out looking for an apprenticeship.
I originally started with learning traditional colour tattoos and slowly progressed into adding more detail in my work. This then naturally grew into more of a neo-traditional style. I then started experimenting with blackwork/dotwork in my work until eventually this was what I was tattooing every day. This is my favourite style in tattooing as I can mix elements of realism and traditional into my work.
In the future I’d love to start doing more guest spots and conventions whilst travelling as I love to explore new places and cultures. I’d love to eventually open my own private studio where people can come to hang out and genuinely have a whole experience – not just a tattoo to remember it by. Imagine pool tables, art/craft classes, slush puppy machines, tattoos and good vibes. Looking forward to doing some more crazy tattoos and meeting you! Thanks for reading x
