“My inspiration is first my customers. Second from that, my own eyes, and the momentary feelings I get from them.”
Samuel began tattooing in 2009, but his love for art began much earlier. Fascinated not only by tattoos but also by paintings, Samuel frequently tries to bring the art of painting into his work, practicing his oil painting skills nearly every day, and refers to his style as “painterly realism.”
Samuel’s goal is to travel to as many tattoo conventions worldwide as he can, and not only win competitions, but also find a greater inspiration for his work. Though careful not to allow other artists to influence him too deeply, he lets his own eyes inspire him.
