Alex Rattray


"I never felt like I fit in at school. I had hoped that Art College would be different but it turned out to be just more of the same. Edinburgh Art College was always where I wanted to attend but after about a year there it felt too much like a factory churning out the same artistic styles.  It also felt like there would be very few job prospects by the end of it all. I had lost faith in art as a career so I left to find something new.

I didn’t expect to find it in tattooing; that came along as an accident… a very happy accident."
