Colin’s love of art was sparked at around 10 years old due to his uncle and artist Micheal Collins who would sit him down and give him lessons on how to draw and paint.

Colin says “ it was these early lesson that taught me the basic skills and methods I still use today in my art and my tattooing and is one of the reasons my style of tattooing leans towards a more painted or realistic approach”

Colin is constantly trying to push his work forward and discover new techniques to improve his work and his skill set “each piece I tattoo is a original design created for the client with the client, I often get told by my customers when I first meet them that they have struggled to find exactly what they want and my reply is always the same, we just haven’t design it yet”
