James Bull  Tattooing

Specialising in Japanese Tattooing became a natural progression, I've always had a fascination for Japanese art and culture.

Although when I first started tattooing I was encouraged  to become more of a Traditional old-school tattoo artist. 

 I believe the bold attributes of this style can be noted in my modern take on Japanese tattooing.

 My tattooing is continuously evolving largely due to the volume of drawing involved  in large scale Japanese tattoos. I'm a strong believer that every tattoo should be original , designed with the wearer in mind. 

It wasn't just the beauty of Japanese artwork and tattoos that captivated me, there are so many meanings behind  the mythological creatures, flora &fauna. Which enables me to offer my customers artwork that is true to the rules and old traditions of Japanese tattooing, whilst being recognisable as my own style. I regularly attend seminars on the mythology and symbolism that feature heavily in Japanese tattooing, also have an ever growing collection of Books on many aspects of Japanese art, culture & tattoos. 

On this website you'll be able to find examples of my work, information on how to book an appointment and other frequently asked questions.  

Many Thanks for your interest in my tattooing.
