TATTOOIST & OWNER
Cholo specialises in fine line blackwork tattoos with an attention to detail, delicacy and precision. He found his passion through graffiti lettering back in high school and his early work was heavily influenced by this, but the more he worked with clients who requested fine line cursive lettering, he learned that this was what he excelled at. Just like that, he found his style.
“I got more confident with it and started putting my own flair into these pieces,” Cholo says. “That’s when I really started picking up a lot of work designing and doing smaller and purely fine line work. I think in a lot of ways my clientele helped me realise my style, they also help me refine it through their own creativity. This was where my talent was and so I spent most of my time making sure this skill was as close to perfect as I could get it.”
TATTOOIST – STICK & POKE
Kate specialises Stick & Poke, also known as 'hand poked'.
Stick & Poke is an ancient hand laboured style of body art. Completed by repeated poking motions to deposit the ink under the skin. It is a less intrusive method of tattooing, which can be less painful but can be a slower process. All equipment is up to the health and safety standards, the same as any machine made tattoo. The end result is a unique look that can be thick bold tattoos or fine and detailed. Completely hand rendered with care.
