Total Tattoo


Total Tattoo is one of the best tattoo magazines in the world. I currently have my own column with them, which runs once every two months. On it, I write of my experiences and opinions of tattooing. I also write the odd feature in the magazine for conventions in the UK.

This is the 'day job'. I currently work as a trainer for Procter and Gamble's Consumer Relations department. As well as training the agents on the products we manufacture, I also make sure they are knowledgeable and comfortable with the systems, procedures, and work ethics of the company.

Joint Honors Bachelor Degree in Advice, Guidance, and Counselling, and Care and Education
