Tom has been training as a tattoo apprentice for some time along side Hans and Paige. He has spent all of his spare time delving into the industry, learning as much as he can about tattooing and honing his drawing skills. He has progressed very quickly and is now fully licensed to take his apprenticeship to the next level and he is very excited about this new venture and looking forward to the future.
Although Tom is a very busy man, he loves nothing more than spending time with his 2 dogs, Harry & Maisey and looking forward to becoming a husband in the near future!
