My name is James. I’m a UK born, Canadian raised Artist, Illustrator + Tattooist living in Vancouver Canada. I am primarily a self-taught artist with a background in design and education. My practice ranges from 3 dimensional light pieces to drawing, multimedia, screen printing and tattooing.
The direction of my work has been deeply influenced by queer and tattoo culture with a focus on creating images that explore vulnerable masculinity and challenge gender stereotypes. I am the co-founder of Homebody Tattoo, a queer focused tattoo collective located in Vancouver.
If you are looking to book a tattoo appointment with me please use this booking request and I will get back to you as soon as possible. Current examples of my work and all other up to date info can be found here.
