MEET THE ARTISTS
Having started her tattoo journey in the late 1990s, Mimsy has had the honour of tattooing generations of Brisbane-ites. From humble beginnings as a T shirt designer and art weirdo; from the moment she picked up a tattoo machine, she was hooked. Though she can execute many styles; her preferences are in the imagery of cute, Japanese and traditional themes. Over the decades she has felt privileged to be able to work on many full back, sleeves and full body work, the larger scale of tattooing would be her ultimate goal! She also loves to fill her days with Kawaii trad treats and kitschy pinups.
ANIME & MANGA
James Craig, specializing in Anime & Pop Culture tattoos has been tattooing for 10 years and is an all-round geek at heart who is inspired by the background scenery and artistic beauty of Studio Ghibli and the bold colourful characters of Japanese anime. While he loves working on larger scale pieces like arm and leg sleeves, he also enjoys small individual pieces as well. In his free time, you’ll find James at home locked away in a dark room building computers or cataloguing his prized Pokémon trading card collection.
3RD YEAR APPRENTICE
Jessie’s aesthetic is a weird cross over between Everyday is Halloween and 70s Love Child which you can see reflected in her art. She loves tattooing tarot cards, lady faces, animals, bugs, flowers and all things horror. Her dog (Ziggy) and cat (Binx) are her whole life so she absolutely adores doing stylised pet portraits. She’s known to throw moons, hearts and glitter in everything she can. You’ll usually find her listening to Lana Del Rey or Ice Nine Kills when you come in. Jessie spends most of her free time on her days off drawing at cafes so she always has a lot of flash designs to choose from but she also loves to do custom work.
