Nathan is our Old School/Traditional specialist, but is happy to take on most other styles and is a really versatile artist; he’s also your man for cover-ups. He joined the Pictures of Lily team in 2016 part-time and things went so well, it wasn’t long before he joined us as a full-time tattooist.
Nath is a local lad, from Biggleswade and some of you may know him as lead singer from the metal band Scar City and now the mighty Parallax https://www.instagram.com/parallax.band/. His two passions are tattooing and music, both of which he’s awesome at!
He always loved the art of tattooing, so as soon as he could he started getting tattooed. He began asking questions while having them done and believed it was something he could do himself, so started drawing in his spare time, researching all the information he could i.e. machines, hygiene, artists and different drawing styles. He has always favoured the Old School/Traditional style and has a keen interest in the codes and practices of Russian prison tattoos. He admires the work of artists such as Oliver Peck, Todd Noble, Samuele Briganti, Lyle Tuttle, Bert Grimm, Don Ed Hardy and of course Sailor Jerry.
It’s hard to persuade Nath to take time off, as he loves his work so much. He strives to do the best he can and is always researching his craft, believing that you never stop learning. Nath is a firm favourite with our customers not only for his tattooing, but the fact he’s a true gent and very calming.
Nath has loads of cool flash designs to choose from if you’re not sure what you’re after and is happy to discuss custom pieces just for you. Interested in getting some work done by Nath? Then swing by the studio, drop him a message or contact us.
