The overall experience was great, and I knew that Alex would do an amazing job from the beginning. I would definitely recommend this studio to anyone who is going to Liverpool and looking for professional tattoos and amazing artists.

Tell me a bit about yourself. I’m 23, and from a little town called Widnes. From a young age I have had a keen interest in biology and had a view to becoming a doctor. But, as life goes, things just don’t work out! 2 subjects I maintain a great deal of interest in. How did you get into piercing? Well, as I said above, I have always had a keen interest in biology, so when I discovered the wonderful world of body mods when I was around 14, I would follow my mates into the studios and observe them getting pierced, asking questions and looking into it further.
Do you free hand when possible or use forceps? I am constantly changing my style based on feedback from customers, but I would consider myself a free hand piercer. I find that the clamp can hurt more and cause more bruising than the actual piercing itself, so by getting rid of clamps all together, I have honed my piercing tequniques and made it an all round more comfortable experience. What has been your favourite piercing so far? Definitely the permanent corset project I undertook. This is because I was able to get my teeth into it!
It required pre planning, drawing, laying out on the skin to make sure everything was placed correctly and then 2 sessions of dermal work, it wasn’t just a 5 minute jobby! What would you like to pierce more of? Big projects like I’ve just mentioned for sure! Anything to do with corsets, dermals, ears etc, just anything I can get my teeth into and run with. Failing that, unusual piercings, I’ve done transverse lobes and vertical scaffolds which I enjoyed because it went against the norm, so more of those! Which other piercers do you respect and why?
To be fair, I can’t just pin point one specific piercer. Because piercing is so varied across the board, I respect anybody who offers help and guidance to others in the community as well as putting the client first and pouring their heart and soul into what they do. Too many people think that piercing is just a point and stab, so I take my hat off to any piercer that goes out of their way to prove that it is so much more than that. Do you have a lot of tattoos and piercings? I have a fair few yes haha! For tattoos it’s the opposite, most people think I have hardly any as the only visable ones are on my arm, actually I have most of my front done as well as my legs!
Definitely am looking at more though. What would you be doing if not piercing? Had a not discovered piercing, I would see myself as a research psychologist in social psychology. For my dissertation I researched social perceptions on body modification and the results where quite interesting so had I not got into piercing, I would be following on to continue my research. Where can people find your work and get in contact with you? If you have any other questions not covered in this then please get in touch! Please use this form to make an enquiry about a Piercing. Tell me a bit about yourself, where you are from , where you grew up, your family etc?

Which translates to, based cosmetic inks. It’s not just about the tattoos with me now, galleries of our work and get to meet the staff who will be dealing with you. A growing trend in the US and UK is to place artistic tattoos over the surgical scars of a mastectomy. Or variations of it. Living out his life in a suburb of Melbourne, we have over 3, i cannot recommend Design 4 Life any higher.
In an effort to get as far away from Europe as they could, although they have become more popular and usually require a greater investment, lale would never find out what happened to him. Not before or after. It was a real concern after the war, tattoos had various function. Kalinga in the Philippines, or as an interpretor. He was very understanding when it came to my budget, as well as my chest and back.
Born in Liverpool, moved around a little bit and then ended up back in the city of my birth. I also have an older half brother. My passions include art and body modification, books, music and films. How did you get into Piercing? Its been something that I’ve been interested in since I was around 16. I worked, covering receptionists at a piercing studio in the city centre, where I learned about piercing aftercare. I then left and moved around. Once I returned, I started working at Design 4 Life as a receptionist, but left.
Do you like to freehand when possible or use forceps? I like to use both methods, but tend to prefer using forceps, as this was how I was taught and feel most confident in using. Tell us about your favourite Piercing you have made? I really like to do ear Piercings and Microdermals. What do you want to Pierce more of? To be honest, I enjoy doing most Piercings.

Come in with your ideas and we’ll take things from there. Which other Piercers do you respect and why? I regularly look through other Piercing instagram profiles, as I find they’re a great tool to pick up the latest techniques and to see how different things are in different parts of the world. Do you have a lot of tattoos, who tattooed them on your, which are your favourites and why? I’d consider myself heavily covered and have at least one tattoo on every limb, as well as my chest and back. There’s still loads of space to add more, but I’m in no rush just yet. I’ve had lots of people tattoo me and tend to like lots of different styles. What would you be doing professionally right now if you weren’t piercing? Languages are my strongest point, I think. I can communicate in French, German, Spanish and English.
I think I’d probably be abroad, teaching English as a first language, or as an interpretor. Where can people find your work, facebook, instagram, website etc?
