Monki Do Tattoo Studio

Artists Bio's

Andy Bowler
I started tattooing in 1999 and have never looked back since. It is my passion in life and something I hope to be doing for a long time yet. I have qualifications in art up to College level but everything else I know has been learnt with time and experience. I base my career on medium to large scale custom tattoos but now and again I do take on smaller scale work. I have many artistic interests and do not focus on one style or genre of tattoo, I hope through this I can create both something unique for my client and myself. I hope you enjoy my portfolio.

Mark Gibson
I am currently the youngest at Monki Do and have worked at the studio since 2005. My apprenticeship was mentored by Andy. With no real art education or background, it was an amazing opportunity to train under a professional tattooist. Upon receiving my first tattoo, I knew what I wanted to spend the rest of my life doing. Regarding inspiration I focus more on painters, sculptors, and different art forms outside of the tattoo world, but I enjoy tattooing just about anything as long as I can work closely with my client to create a design that's unique and we are both happy with.

Steve Jarvis
For as long as I can remember I have had a passion for art. It's the only subject at school that got my full attention, and the only one I was any good at! However, I couldn't wait to leave school, so I don't have any formal qualifications, but continued to draw in my spare time. I started tattooing in 2002 and joined the Monki Do team in November 2009. I prefer doing medium to large pieces. I really enjoy bold colourful work, Japanese and pin-ups, as well as black and grey portraits and realism. Contact me at Click my photo to view my portfolio

Matt Bowler
I have been a tattoo artist since 2006 and have always had a great deal of respect for the industry since a young age. I spent many evenings watching my father being tattooed and at the age of 18 I had my first piece of body art followed by many others. I have spent a lot of time in studios over the years talking to various tattooists and gaining a respect for their talents, techniques and skills. I have a passion for my work and enjoy tattooing all aspects and styles. My areas of expertise include skulls, black and grey, religious and animal portraits. Being a tattooist is not a job it's a passion. I take great care and diligence in delivering body art of the highest standards and work with my clients to gain a full understanding of their desires and aspirations. To achieve complete customer satisfaction is always my ultimate goal. Contact me at Click my photo to view my portfolio
