Tattoo Apprentice Dylan



How long have you been a tattoo artist for?

I have been tattooing for over 4 years. 

Where did you grow up & what where you doing before being a tattooist ?

I was born in Melbourne but grew up on the Gold Coast. Before starting my apprenticeship I was a Chef, running the kitchen in a popular Mexican restaurant in Broadbeach

Are you a self taught artist or are you learning to draw now you are in a studio?

Before I started my apprenticeship I was drawing alot of geo/ sacred geometry stuff which I taught myself. During my apprenticeship at Loco, Sean and Doddy taught me how to draw realism, which I had never really drawn before and now I really enjoy it. It's really cool to start a piece and see it all come together once its finished

What is your favourite style of tattooing you would like to learn and specialise in?

Geometric, dot work, heavy blackwork and definitely realism.

What art mediums do you do?

Graphite pencil drawings, dotwork geometric pieces. Used to do a bit of graffiti too but not so much of that now

What's the best advice you'd give someone looking to get into the industry?

Draw! Draw everything, draw different styles and broaden your skills. Work hard and expect to be pushed hard
