AMANDA RUBY AWARD WINNING TATTOOIST/ BEST UK FEMALE TATTOO ARTIST AWARD 2012. Best black and grey female @ Peterlee`s Tattoo Arts  Festival 2011. Best Tribal/Celtic/Polynesian @ City Of Steel 2011
l have been a UK  TATTOO ARTIST since the beginning of 2008. My style of tattoo art is a combination of black and grey realism and pattern work, preferably combining both in the same piece. I choose to use black and grey as opposed to colour – with exception of very subtle hints. I am proud to say I won the best UK female artist award 2012 (UK Industry Awards Liverpool) and have been three times nominated and have won two other awards for my work so i am thrilled that people like my style and will endeavour to progress in my tattooing! You can also find my work in LAL HARDY`S  THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF TATTOO ART and also a book called BLACK TATTOO ART.
I work from a private studio on an appointment only basis, if you are interested in making an appointment please go to my contact page , the studio name is “The Jewel in the Lotus” and it’s address is Studio 4, 56/58 The Old High Street, Folkestone, Kent CT20 1RN You need to push buzzer No 4.
