Originally from Perth, Australia, Molloy started his apprenticeship at a young age of fifteen and went through seven shades of hell to get to where he is now. It was a series of unfortunate happenstances turning against him and his dreams. A man with dreams and nothing else to lose, he picked himself up and tried again. And several years more of breaking and picking the pieces back up, here he is, having made a name for himself in the industry.

Molloy's style consist of traditional tattoo elements such as clean lines and black shades, squeezing in between his own distinct style which results into neotraditional style tattoos. He described his dabbling into pop culture pieces as ‘surprising but not unwelcome.’
