I'm the captain of the ship, the quiet one... well, until I have had a rum!
I've been tattooing now for 12 years. I got in to tattooing at a fairly late age of 34, but naturally fell in to it and became good at most styles, ' Jack of all, Master of none' as they say. I started my journey at Needlework Tattoos in Lightwater and have done various Guest Spots in and around London. I enjoy the odd convention too and you may have spotted me at Cardiff, London and Brighton to name a few.
November 2017 is when I established Tortuga Tattoo Co and from then it has gone from strength to strength and has put itself on the map within the Surrey area.
I've slowly filtered down to only a few styles in large scale including Colour Japanese, Graphic/Anime, Stylised sketch work and selected portrait work (mainly famous/movie characters)
My first sight of a "real" tattoo was on my parents friend when I was very young.
My Dad loved music, so I got to hear all the greats growing up. From there I found Metal music at the age of 13 and fell in love with it. Punk Rock and skateboarding shortly after. That's when I started seeing lots of tattoos and got my first tattoo pretty young. After leaving school I left for the UK, couple of years later I got my first tattoo machine and started tattooing myself between a series of different jobs.
Late 2012, my good friend Richie based at Electric Lounge Tattoo, gave me the opportunity to become a full time tattoo artist taking me back to South Africa and I have been tattooing ever since.
After some travelling, I found myself here at Tortuga Tattoo making amazing new friends and doing some radical tattoos since April 2018. I enjoy doing Traditional tattoos, Japanese, Black work and fine line tattoos. I also enjoy doing script and lettering.
I was asked to write a bio for this. Please bare with me whilst I "mullet" over...........TRAD TATTOOS
Hey Jonny here!
I got my first tattoo back in '94 and fell in love with tattoos and the industry pretty instantly, getting my second tattoo the next week and have never really stopped since.
When Lee offered me an apprenticeship, I jumped at the chance and have never looked back. Having completed my apprenticeship I am now proudly working as Junior Artist at Tortuga.
I enjoy doing intricate tattoos. blackwork and tiny pieces, such as finger work but my real passion is Blackwork and Negative Blackout. Not everyone can see the beauty in solid black and that is what makes it so special! If in doubt, Black it out!
