“The tattoo and art worlds are closed off from each other,” says Kevin. "We’re trying to break down the barriers, and show that contemporary art can be a tattoo as well. If you know the tricks of the needle, you can use them to your advantage.”

“Our art is our life,” says Jade and continues “it’s seven days a week, and we put our all into it. It couldn’t work any other way. Being in a relationship and having to devote as much time as we do to our art – it wouldn’t work any other way.”

“It baffles us why there are tattoo artists that aren’t creating their own art in their own style. You wouldn’t see that in the art world. Everybody has their own style.” says Jade.

And we certainly dig their unique style!
