TATTOO ARTIST – CLANLACHLAN
Clanlachlan – ‘I originally hail from Wood Green in North London where I spent the majority of my life. Coming from multicultural epicentre that is London has given me great insight into the many cultures and peoples that flock here from all over the world.
I see myself as a man of many talents as I like to pursue any medium in any form of creative output that takes my interest.
For me tattoo is a form of art that has interested me ever since I was a child, I didn’t know when I was younger that I would have a career in the art form but I always had a pencil in my hand drawing anything from cartoons to anime to attempting realism.
In my late teens I took up teaching myself to play guitar and I became heavily interested in creating music which forced my drawing to take a back seat, I also decided to to go to uni and study Film in which I have a degree in.
It was during my University years that I had a great yearning to pick up a pencil/pen/brush or whatever I could find even a wacom tablet on the computer to start creating art again. It was also during this period that I came across my curiosity of learning the art of tattooing as I witnessed my best friend receiving a Tottenham Hotspur’s tattoo on his calf and the experience inspired me greatly as I believed this was something I could be very great at if I set myself the goal.
After University I set out to learn to tattoo by getting myself an apprenticeship under Craig Bain Joseph who originates from Grenada. I then have also learnt off many artist who I have crossed paths with to try and to incorporate a unique take on my black and grey style. I feel as I’m always progressing and forever learning something new.’
