Tattoos by Steve Connell
Art, to me, has always been a very cathartic experience. And as a result, I've always had a great appreciation of art (and music) from a young age. I spent most of my school years drawing dark, macabre, distasteful images which reflected my jaded view of society as a disillusioned teenager, but slowly developed that into real life sketches and drawings of objects and scenes. Finally picking up a tattoo machine in my late 30's I have been a tattooist for around 4 years now, and am always learning and growing as an artist on, and off, the skin. I love tattooing all styles but definitely have developed a fondness for realistic black and grey, while also enjoying bright and bold new school inspired pieces. I have also in recent times been revealing the challenge of colour realism, especially wildlife and piscatorial related images and am keen to explore more of this particular style. I love taking clients ideas, or images, and working with them to make them into a piece of body art they can be proud to wear forever, helping them to "Wear your heart on your skin".
