Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I own and run a tattoo and piercing studio in South East
I'm a world famous artist, yet nobody will ever know of my work.
I'm serious here, it's quite an interesting story, I've had a piece
on display at the Royal Academy of Arts a while back. Definitely a
more surreal moment in life.
I lived in the states for 3 years doing a little bit of this, that
and the other, it's where I did my piercing apprenticeship and I
also worked as a mechanic for the better part of a year.
I'm an avid reader and love a good movie, a decent story is never
lost on me.
Past that you're better off asking!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Running my studio. Took far longer than I thought it would to get
running, stole it's fair share of blood, sweat and beers from me,
but it was all definitely worth it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Poking holes in people apparently. I mean that's what I get paid
for so I've gotta be good at it right?
I used to draw a lot, any scrap of paper was in trouble if there
was a pen near by. Sadly I don't do this as much anymore as it
seems the older i've got the more of a perfectionist i've become,
and I cant seem to find a spare 20+ hours to draw something
worthwhile, though I still doodle on any spare post it note I find.

Im mostly unassuming. I guess I do get asked a lot about my
tattoos. Other than that I guess you could tell me what stood out
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books : I've a rather varied reading interest, fiction or fact,
fantasy or history. I've got an entire row on my bookshelf
dedicated to Norse Mythology / Viking stories though. Authors such
as Adrian Tchaikovsky, Giles Kristian, Robyn Young, Tim Severin,
Robert Low and Bernard Cornwell come to mind. Though I'm
unashamedly reading George R. Martin's stuff at the moment and have
a tome and a half of H. P Lovecraft to get through still.
Movies : Literally anything, from Disney to obscure film festival
stuff. I've a movie collection of over 400 works of art (art being
subjective, I'll admit to having some awful pieces in there), I
find myself watching at least one or two a day, or at the very
least have something playing in the background that I've seen
Music : The Decemberists, Alexi Murdoch, Bell X1, Leonard Cohen,
Mazzy Star, Sun Kil Moon, Poets of The Fall, Belle and Sebastian,
Antony & The Johnsons and many more of that kinda thing.
Instrumental stuff like Two Steps From Hell is pretty awesome too.
Recently added Kyla La Grange to this, she's amazing.
Food : Living alone somewhat limits my home cooking cuisine as
nothing is portioned well enough for the bachelor life. Though I
can entertain with the best of them, cooking anything from a decent
Sunday roast to authentic* Mexican food stuffs.
*As authentic as them packets of taco making kits can be.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Books, Movies, Cheeseburgers, Socialising, Artsy Stuff, A decently
long, and engaging conversation about nothing in particular.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
All the things that could have been or have yet to come...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sadly with the running of my studio Saturdays tend to be my
busiest, so Fridays are just another week day for me. Mondays are
where it's at though as having Tuesdays off is the way of the
