Origins of the Tattoo

Tattooing as an ancient rite of passage, passing through puberty into adulthood, was a common ritual. The idea is: if a girl can't take the pain of tattooing, she is un-marriageable, because she will never be able to deal with the pain of child birth. If a boy can't deal with the pain of a tattoo, he is considered to be a bad risk as a warrior.

Primitive people often got tattooed before an ordeal or dangerous enterprise.

For eons people have marked themselves with the signs of their totem animals in order to gain the strengths and abilities of the totem animal. On an inner level it shows that the bearer has a close and mysterious relationship with this guardian animal spirit. The Maori of New Zealand use tattooing as a rite of social status, as a person's Moko designs enhanced their prestige and shows the transition from one social status to another. Read more

Artists

Evelyn is skilled in all styles of tattooing, though particularly enjoys Black and Grey styles or more colourful Japanese.

Evelyn attended Art College studying Fine Art, Graphic Art and Ceramics. At 19 she moved to London where she met her future husband, who at that time was a tattoo artist. They travelled around Europe for a while tattooing the locals, and Evelyn soon learnt the trade. Following this period they spent a few years tattooing in the UK. After they separated Evelyn didn't tattoo again for many years.

In 1999 Evelyn's interest in tattooing was rekindled when she was asked to work for Steve Mitchell at his studio in Chippenham, however it wasn't until 2004 that Evelyn began to take up tattooing once again.​
