Alright guys and girls, I’m Rob – if you don’t know already I’m Hayley’s other half (or better half haha!) and a tattoo artist from Essex. I work in Southend at Low Tide Tattoo Studio and I thought I’d give you a little window into my world. On an average day you’ll find me at the shop, inflicting pain and creating art on willing customers. I love my job and wouldn’t want to change it for the world, I’ve been lucky enough to meet some really cool people along the way, made some great friends and it has opened many doors for me.
Contrary to most peoples beliefs it’s not exactly a rock star lifestyle, if anything it’s quite a modest, humble existence as in most art forms it’s more to do with the love of the work than the money it makes. I’m lucky enough to know how good I’ve got it as I’ve not always been a tattooist, I once was an electrician which was fine but not where my passion lied so I decided to chase the dream and it was the best thing I ever did!
As a part of this takeover, you’ll be seeing me again in the near future where I’ll be letting you guys know what I’ve been up to… so, until next time – take care!
