Artful Ink Perth Resident Artist
Ever since he can remember, Paul has had a passion for all forms of art. At university he studied Fine Art & Industrial Design, majoring in Furniture Design, and then became a cabinet maker. This art form’s lasting influence can be seen in his precise, technical tattoo work today. In his spare time outside of cabinet making, Paul could often be found drawing tattoo designs for his friends and family. In 2012, one particular drawing of his daughter’s teddy bear – that was to be tattooed on his wife – was fated to become Paul’s foot in the door of the industry. And so he began his training under well-known Perth tattoo artist, Mike E. As he has progressed in his art and career, Paul has enjoyed working with all facets of tattooing. A few favoured styles include: colour realism, black & grey realism, sacred geometry, dotwork and polynesian designs.
