Artful Ink Margs Artist

Cory Wesley

As a teenager, Artful Ink’s resident hand poke artist Cory was heavily influenced by cartoon illustrations, comic books, and skate culture – especially art like Reg Mombassa’s iconic work for Mambo. This influence can be seen in Cory’s tattoo art today, from the bold simplicity of American traditional styles, to bold ornamental patterns, tribal and black work pieces. He began tattooing in Perth, in 2015, and after travelling across Europe, Asia and Australia, he decided to make Margaret River his home. Cory added machine tattooing into his repertoire in 2020, continuing to also hand poke, and so giving his clients the best of both worlds. When off duty, Cory enjoys spending time with friends and family, being at the beach, cooking, and using his creativity. Fun fact: Cory tattooed his own gums black.
