David Cordon from the United Kingdom writes…”I’ve been tattooing since June 2006, previous to this I’d spent the majority of my life as a Ventilation Engineer. Drawing had only ever been a hobby until I was offered an apprenticeship by Jim Gambell at his studio and now my permanent place of employ, Ritual Art Tattoo. I had never dreamt of becoming a tattoo artist and knew little of the advances being made by artists throughout the world in this field. It’s only since working there that I have come to realize just how lucky I am.
Jim and his partner, Lizi Sage, taught me that tattooing is a very serious art-form. You have to be at your best every day, no mistakes and I work with a team of incredibly talented artists who constantly force me to raise my game because they are forever raising theirs. It makes for a very creative environment and is the most fun I have ever had in my life! With such a diverse range of styles between us, there will be someone at the studio to suit your needs.
The atmosphere is welcoming and friendly and no booking is needed when coming to discuss a tattoo, though we are booking several months in advance so don’t expect to get something the same day. We specialize in custom work, we have no books to choose designs from, only artists portfolio’s. If you are in all day then lunch is provided. We hope to see you soon.”
