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.
