James started at studio 59 tattoos back in 2011 as an apprentice working with Geoff for a few years, building up a great understanding and knowledge of tattooing and designing
James stayed part of our team after his apprenticeship and has now been with us for 7 years and he’s built up a clientele with a wide range of different styles he’s learnt over the years. He’s always looking to learn more and pushes his work to gain the best tattoo possible for his client.
The styles James loves working with and is most confident in are;
- Black and grey – all styles
- Neo traditional – colour/black and grey
- Dotwork / mandala
- Abstract / Watercolour tattoos
James works closely with clients to gain an understanding of their vision of the tattoo they desire and creates full custom designs. He caters for most styles but he doesn’t tend to do solid black Tribal work.
James future ambitions are to work more conventions and to one day open up his own studio and to continue his tattoo/art career.
