Custom nature-inspired and graphic tattoos in Birmingham, UK.
Hello! I am a tattoo artist, artist and former studio owner based in Birmingham, UK. I co-owned and ran Modern Body Art tattoo studio from 1999 to 2021*, tattooed on and off in the early days and full-time since 2006. I closed MBA in October 2021 and moved to an exciting new chapter tattooing from a private studio, still in Birmingham.
Like all artists, I don’t like to pin myself to one style but basically, I like to tattoo things from nature – birds, animals, flowers, skulls etc – sometimes with graphic elements such as geometry and shapes. I know watercolour tattoos are very popular but if that is what you are looking for please check out what is in my portfolio as all my work will match that look (I don’t copy other people’s tattoos, either directly or stylistically). If you check out my portfolio below then you should get a feel for what the tattoos I do look like.
Ultimately I try and make a tattoo that is strong enough to last and look good today and also in years to come, as well as being artistically interesting, technically clean and aesthetically pleasing. I am happy working big or small, colour or black and grey.
I also have a mailing list where I very occasionally send out discounted designs, last-minute cancellations, offers on paintings for sale etc. You can sign up here. Alternatively, just follow me on IG.
If you would like to get tattooed by me, please get in touch. I look forward to hearing from you.
