Welcome to my world

Hello everyone. I am Kay Elle and I'm hoping to take up tattooing as a career next year. I have been training now for around 6 months with my brother who is already a tattooist but in 2 weeks I go on my first proper tattoo training course and I'm really excited! I will be training with AJ Robertson from Shefield and then hopefully for a full day once a month to learn all the different techniques and styles. I am aiming to start a studio of my own in around 12 - 18 months when I will hopefully be good enough and confident enough to do it on my own. I have worked on some friends who allowed me to use them as guinea pigs and my hubby Mel is next hahahaha :) Anyway keep checking back to see how I'm getting on as I will add pics of my work as I go. x

I have just found some of the pics of some of my work so  here it is


  1. Looking good so far, can't wait to see how you progress. I've actually tried doing tattooing on some fake skin, it's a lot harder than it looks. I think it's more the unnatural feeling of the needle gun.

    Kudos to you.


  2. Hi! Great work... looking forward to seeing your future work.

  3. This is pretty cool, you are very good for just starting out! Looking foward to more.

  4. @colcorbane - Thanks for letting me practice on ya babe :)

    @Drazilek - Thanks duck, and I know what you mean, I tried on fake skin first and couldn't really do it, real skin is much easier because its thicker, I kept snagging my needle on the fake stuff.

    @zorcon & CC- Thankyou, I will get more pics up as I work and hopefully you will like those too :)

    Thank you all for following me and encouraging me to do better x

  5. You're off to a great start! I'd recommend taking some really good shots of these first tattoos. If you are not into photography, at least take them in daylight and don't use a flash...outside on an overcast day is ideal. You'll want to showcase your work with some nice images.

    Anyway, here's to your talent!

  6. @Zero - Thank you, I will get some better pics done like you suggested as soon as, I just wanted to get some on for now though to give an idea of my work.

    @Drax- Cheers hun, The tribal piece is one of Mels, I haven't uploaded the one from his other arm yet but will get it done when I get a chance, also keep an eye out for more of his cus he says he will be my guinea pig :) x
