I am no longer working at Tyler B Murphy’s Sins of Style Tattoo Shop at 22 Hope street in Gardens.
After spending 3 years with the main okes,i have decided to venture on my own.
Working there enabled me to focus so much more on tattooing and how to tattoo,by having the freedom to work in an environment that encouraged just that.
I also learnt alot of philosophy and big new words i never knew existed in the English language from Lee.
Leon made me smell really good.
Working with Tyler was always learning,not just about tattoing,but,alot about everything.
Sins of Style will always be were i really learnt how to tattoo.
My first week in the tiny world of Tattooing in Cape Town was spent with Thamar and the gang in Claremont,at their shop,The Body Architects.
It was a lot of fun,sharing the guest spot with Ross Hallam of Handstyles in Joburg.
We were really well looked after and there was always a good vibe in the shop.
I definitely will be back there again at some point!!!
This week I’m at the new shop Cape Electric Tattoo that just opened.
A rather handsome looking shop located at 11 Buitensingel Street in the city.
I’ll be tattooing alongside Gareth Lloyd and having the extremely energetic Waldo managing the shop!
If you want to get tattooed by me,come by or contact me at 0791634600 or email@example.comfirstname.lastname@example.org or call (021)4237646 at the shop directly!

She’s grabbing mah’ tittie…..
My main manne,Craig and Simon,from Macbeth footwear and apparel,have oh so kindly flowed me some really really cool shit!
I say thank you!!!!!
I am a fussy bastard when choosing my chosen apparel.
the shoes are awesome and the shirts are some pretty cool rags to put on to cover up mah’ titties with.
well made stuff!!
these ‘Hensleys’ are way comfy!
These ‘Eliots’ are completely vegan friendly,which kind of put me off,because i like eating animals and vegetables,but they’re totally radically comfortable.
i cycle alot and use these as my preferred foot attire,nice and simple.
they’re probably safe enough to eat aswell.
Again,thanks okes,i really appreciate the flow!!!!!!!!
On another note,i am participating with the RVCA ANP(Artist Network Program),as one of ten other South Africans as it launches on our shores.
I feel truly honoured and special in my pants to be part of this.

There’ll be some rad-tastic art shows happening around and a load of other shit.
