Since a very young age I’ve always loved the arts, I was always either drawing or dancing! I studied graphing design at college and it was there that I found a love for photography and that’s what I graduated in. I met Dave at university and a few years later we decided to open Studio Ink Well! I’m not at the studio full time as we have 3 young children but when I’m not replying to emails and doing admin, I like to do handpoke tattoos. My very first tattoo was done in this style and the technique is quite different to machine tattooing, the most obvious one being that there’s no noise! Handpoke lends itself to dotwork tattoos and that’s my favourite thing to do!

“My first experience into art was through comic books and soon became interested in graffiti. As I got older I found a way to use my creativity to forge a career having graduated with a degree in Graphic Design. After pursuing this avenue for some time, I soon realised that it wasn’t for me. It was then that I came across tattooing have never looked back since.
For the last 8 years, I have covered a wide range of styles from Japanese to realism but have found a passion for fine line blackwork and ornamental.
I also love POP vinyls!”

I’ve always been creative, apparently I was never without pencil and paper as a child, and sold my first painting at age 5! I’ve enjoyed studying a variety of art forms over the past 20 odd years and eventually got a degree in illustration. I started my apprenticeship at Studio Ink Well in August 2018 under the guidance of the ever knowledgeable Dave, becoming a fully fledged tattoo artist in September 2019. My preferred styles are blackwork and watercolour and love to tattoo all things illustrative, be it my own creation or characters from book/film. I also find a lot of inspiration in nature, with a huge appreciation for all things flora and fauna. There’s never a dull moment at Studio Ink Well, where the main topics of discussion are tv and film, and most importantly FOOD! What’s that saying? When you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life.

"Love lasts forever, but a tattoo lasts 6 months longer."


"You put a tattoo on yourself with the knowledge that this body is yours to have and enjoy while you're here. You have fun with it, and nobody else can control (supposedly) what you do with it."

Don Ed Hardy

"A great tattoo is a statement, not a style. And getting it is a journey, not a destination."

Vince Hemingson

"My skin is my canvas. The artwork on it represents something that is very powerful and meaningful in my life. I look at my skin as a living diary because all my tattoos represent a time in my life. And I never wish to shut the door on the past, so I carry it all with me."

Dave Navarro

"In all ages, far back into prehistory, we find human beings have painted and adorned themselves."
