TATTOOS WITH INTENTION

A THERAPEUTIC APPROACH TO MARKING THE SKIN
 

About Me

I have been marking people for a while now, and I feel I’m only just starting to completely understand the process. I have worked in good studios learning all the technical in’s and out’s of electric tattooing. Developing a solid foundation of how to tattoo and work with the body, I became “successful” at what I set out to do. It was a necessary step, but I was almost blind to the reality of the mainstream industry.

Clarity came with time and experience, something was missing. I felt a strong pull toward more traditional ways of tattooing. This led me to spend time with lots of good teachers. I am learning about ceremony and healing, aspects that have long paralleled tattooing in many cultures.

 

Finally, a decade on, tattooing has become much more than an artistic expression. It is a tool that I use to help people grow, feel and record their lives.

I offer a form of therapeutic tattooing. The approach is ritualistic in nature and echoes ancient tattooing techniques without imitating them, cultivating a strong sense and connection to the sacred. It is a dynamic process I am continually developing. This experience is not for every tattoo or every client. More information is available via consultation.

Selected Work

This is only a selection of my work. Even though the majority of my work is largely geometry and pattern based, I have included a few pieces to show the range of what I can and still get asked to do. Know that I am open to all ideas and styles. I enjoying blending and fusing different images and genres to create different designs that are truly unique.

Why Work With Me?

My process involves being fully aware of the physical, metaphysical and spiritual aspects of your tattoo journey. At present, I am focusing on large-scale geometric and pattern-based pieces to tell your story. Each unique piece is developed organically through consultations in-person or via Skype, depending on your location and needs. My style is shaped by an interest in the geometry of our internal and external worlds. Simple. Balanced. Black. Dots and lines. Visual language. Good use of negative space. Continuity. Room to grow.

Let’s Talk

If you are ready to make an appointment or would like to talk about a possible tattoo, please fill in the contact form and I will get back to you shortly.

Alternatively, you can give the studio a call on 03 6379 4902 if time is of the essence.
All appointments require a $200 deposit, which comes off the cost of your tattoo and a separate drawing fee depending on the scale of design. Confirmed appointments also include a consultation prior to drawing.

A pre-appointment consultation is also available, priced at $100. This is done via Skype or phone. This is a good option for:

  • asking advice, guidance, opinion around tattoo ideas prior to making an appointment.
  • developing your concept or intention in discussion with me.
  • first time tattoos, general questions.
  • If you would like to know more specifics about the therapeutic process.

Find Me.

I am based in Launceston, Tasmania.
My private studio is located at home, it is not a street shop.

Tasmania is a beautiful little island off the southern most tip of Australia, where nothing lies between us and the Antarctic. Well worth a visit in its own right. Most of my clientele travel from interstate or internationally. This is highly recommended for those who have the time and means to make it possible as the experience of taking “time out” is a major factor in therapeutic tattooing.

Launceston airport is 1hr and 20minutes from Sydney and flights that are booked ahead cost under $100 each way. From Melbourne the flights are 45 minutes and also well under $100. I do travel regularly – Sydney twice a year, Queensland and Victoria usually once a year and internationally once a year.  To get specific dates and locations or to go on a waiting list for an area please join my mailing list or send me an email.
