    What my new logo means | and a small dive into my mind and what I'm looking for in a logo

    What my new logo means | and a small dive into my mind and what I'm looking for in a logo

    This was originally meant for an instagram video but I ended up going into more depth than I thought I was going to, so I decided to make it a podcast episode instead.
    I've been thinking about making a new logo for a little while now and I'm more than happy with how it has turned out.
    Enjoy the show.

    Laziness & Discipline | my journey through my own mental barriers

    I've always been a naturally lazy person, and my talent has carried me through most of my successes if not all. There have been small pockets of discipline sprinkled throughout my life but none worth writing home about.
    This episode talks about what I've learnt and where I am, and what it'll take to get to where I want to be.

    The tattoo process from the very beginning | my perspective on how to go about getting a tattoo

    The tattoo process from the very beginning | my perspective on how to go about getting a tattoo

    If you're curious about how the tattoo process works, this is the episode for you.
    I've had many instances throughout my career as a tattoo/moko artist where people have come across rude or ignorant as to how they should approach me for work.
    I now realise that a lot of people aren't aware of the best method (for me anyway) to approach an artist for a tattoo and this episode of the podcast aims to shine a light on the whole process so you can be more informed when looking for your next tattoo. 
    Ngā mihi.
    Hau.
