He's always been drawn to black and grey, and it's something he really enjoys doing. Josh loves textures and line work, with a bit of soft shading to add depth.

Ragnarok Tattoo, Kingsbridge
Originally from Cardiff, Paul moved to Devon to study fine art at Uni, but quickly fell into tattoo art. In 2009 he started doing hand poked tattooing in a variety of styles, then began focusing on geometric designs, merging them with other styles he'd enjoyed in his earlier career. 4 years ago, craving a more relaxed lifestyle Paul moved to Kingsbridge, Devon, where he worked with Dris Donnelly. In November 2017 he took over the studio and changed the name to Ragnarok due to his love of Norse mythology. Paul has now refined his technique working with just black ink and a limited needle selection. He was diagnosed with Autism a few years ago which he thinks is a help rather than a hindrance in tattooing, allowing deep focus for long periods of time, also possibly explaining his love of patterns and structure.
Since Troy started tattooing in 2010, he's always loved black and grey tattoos and loves the way they look when fresh and healed, and with so many amazing tattoo artists to look up to it was easy for him to fall in love with this style.
