It’s not just the mountains calling me!

B.Y.O.H. started as an adventure & mindset brand/ online and outdoor community. I practised what I preached which got me to where I needed to be…

April 2021 I made it happen! I bought everything I had to the table. I purchased everything I would need to start teaching myself to become a tattooer! It was a complete mine field – I really didn’t know a thing or where to begin. I’d say I’ve got a fair few tattoos, I have a love for body art and I’ve always had a keen eye for detail, drawing, painting and being arty and creative but being a tattoo artist – I knew nothing…and there’s a lot to learn! So with a little help from YouTube I got on the right track. I purchased my kit from an independent tattoo supply shop in UK who were/ still are, very helpful. 
I began practising on silicone fake skin mats where even creating a solid straight line was a challenge!…

…4 months of practice mats and stabbing my own leg from thigh to ankle, September 2021 I decided to offer free tattoos to my friends and family so I could practise on human skin, other than my own and build a portfolio.

I absolutely believe I ‘found my calling’ I absolutely love tattooing and will enjoy improving on my skills and creating awesome pieces for everyone that allows me to!

December 2022 I moved my home studio into Ironbridge within the funky hub at BE Ironbridge. 

For everyone that knows me well, would know I have always wanted to be a tattoo artist.
It’s took timing, divine timing, for it to happen.
Now is my time, finally. 💫
