Lance grew up on the NSW south coast where he started his apprenticeship in a local street shop and began his journey into professional tattooing. A predominantly self taught artist before tattooing, Lance has been intrigued with tattoos and more specifically the Japanese style of art and tattooing for as long as he can remember. Lance draws his inspiration from artists such as Horiyoshi III, Horisumi, Horikitsune, Judd Ripley, Gary Royal, Big Meas, BJ Betts and many more, as well as carvings, woodblock prints and paintings both old and new, with a focus on clean lines and strong colours. His time in a busy street shop has served him well to learn his technique and up his skills and being able to take on most styles of tattoo including both simple and elaborate lettering, American traditional and Japanese styles. He has many finished drawings ready to tattoo and is constantly creating new pieces for upcoming clients and for walk-ins..
