Interview with Andrew Kellocks
What is your name, where are you from and what do you do?
My name is Andrew, I'm from Singapore and I'm a tattooer.
What influences your creativity?
What really influences me in my work is mostly music, my family and friends, religion (though I'm not religious), and different cultures around the world really intrigue me.
How long have you been tattooing, and how did you first get into the trade?
I've been tattooing for about 5 years right now. Every male Singaporean citizen is required to serve the army and I've been getting tattooed since I was a teen. I was studying prior to tattooing and it was probably a calling as soon as my school closed down, my mentor asked me to work full time at his studio and here I am still tattooing haha.
Describe your work in 3 words.
My work in 3 words would be WORK HARDER ASSHOLE hahaha.
What do you usually listen to in the studio?
I listen to a whole bunch of music... If I listed it down here it would take too much space, but the main stuff I listen to is rap and punk.
Who is your dream client?
My dream clients would definitely be Greggletron, and also Frank Carter and his wife Sarah Carter. His music and their work inspire me so much.
What do you do on your days off?
When I'm not at work I'm riding my motorbike, jamming with my bands, making more art (I try) and drinking coffee for sure.
Who else's work should we check out?
You should check out my friend from Barcelona. His name is @errorculto. He has crazy insane ideas... And my colleague @tofutattoo, though he doesn't really do dark art his work is pretty sick too.
