"The handpoked method is a more gentle way of getting a tattoo, and it can be a relaxing experience. I prefer to get my tattoos done this way and I think that is why I was drawn to learn this method instead of using the machine. It has a more organic feel to it, knowing that I don't have to rely on electricity to create the tattoos, I like to simplicity of it."
Faye is a handpoke tattoo artist based in Newcastle, UK.
She creates delicate tattoos without machine, which are often inspired by nature. She has a passion for creating elegant botanical tattoos that are made with fine lines and subtle dot shading to achieve the gentle leaf and flower formations.
With a background in mural painting and a degree in Fine Art, tattooing was a natural progression, and in 2016 she started tattooing.
Now she runs EVERGREEN TATTOO STUDIO in the Ouseburn area of Newcastle.
