Guerilla Needles - Tattoo and Paint
I specialise in full colour, floral tattooing in a neo-traditional style.
I am currently on the road - if you want me to visit your town,

Art has always been a passion of mine, creativity is in my blood.
I first fell in love with tattooing when I was a little girl, designing my first ever tattoo during a school exam - I waited 5 years and got it tattooed on me the day I turned 18. During the years I found myself going down a different creative path, studying Embroidery at university, and setting up my first business - 'Guerilla Embroidery' upon graduation. For years I worked in and around the creative industries: I am a fully qualified art teacher, I ran community outreach programmes and made and designed carnival costumes, among other things.
My journey into tattooing began in 2013 - when I was lucky enough to get an apprenticeship under Rob Ratcliffe of Border Rose Tattoo. He changed my life and I am eternally grateful.
I am deeply passionate about the art of tattooing and I am a keen collector myself, having travelled all over the world to get tattooed.
I love the transformative power of tattoos - it is my aim to help you love your body through decoration.
Subject matter wise I am particularly interested in depictions of the natural world, and specifically botanical illustrations, however I firmly believe that it is my job to realise your ideas - so any subject matter will be considered.
