Nathan

Tattoo Artist & Managing Director

Thrax and i started Devils Own Tattoos back in 2000 with the intentions of giving all our customers the very best experience and high quality art work. I started tattooing in 2000 and over the years I have spent a lot of time researching and learning Japanese traditions, myths and artwork. I have a real passion for Neo Traditional Japanese work from bright bold colours to black and grey shade, from sleeve work to full body suits, Nothing is too big!

Thrax

Tattoo Artist & Director
First picked up a tattoo machine back in October 1997 after discovering the art by drawing tattoo designs for my friends. Inspired by classical artists such as H R Giger, Francis Bacon and Salvador Dali.
I was Initially an apprentice under Lee Bott of Bodytech Tattoos, Leicester.
Heavily inspired by Tattoo masters including Bernie Luther, Jack Rudy, Guy Aitchison  and of cause Paul Booth. I quickly found a passion for black and shade tattoos especially the realism of portraits and the alternate realism of biomechanical tattoos.

I have been a tattoo artist at Devils Own since 2009, after completing my apprenticeship here. After leaving school I spent 10 years in graphic design and screen print, extending my wide range of artistic skills. Since then I have built a portfolio in various styles from dark bold traditional to bright girly floral work, mainly working in traditional colour work but I will take on a wide variety of work, I’m always ready for a challenge!

Joanne

Tattoo Artist

I have been a tattoo artist at Devils Own since 2012, after completing my apprenticeship here. I love my job and tattooing people for a living. I’ve got an eye for detail and love intricate designs with lots of line work. Black and grey or a good colour piece – I enjoy both! But I like my designs to be unique! I’m a bit of a perfectionist at heart and I always strive for excellence in all my work.

Kenny

Tattooist

I have been tattooing for 26 years here in Leicester and couldn’t imagine doing anything else. I started in Leicester City centre back in the 1980’s for 15 years and I have been at Devils Own since 2009. I enjoy oriental and polynesian style of tattooing, however with my experience I have seen every style come and go through out the years and gave each style a go many times!

I have gone from helping him out on a Saturday here at Devils Own from 13, to being a full time body piercer. I have a huge passion for body piercing and I am always striving to try new things!
