My name is Benjamin Gary Richards and I’m a young realistic tattoo artist at Dreamhands.
I have been drawing consistently since I was about 7 years old and had nothing else in mind of what to do with my life apart from be an artist.
I studied Fine Arts at Whitecliffe College of Art and Design for 3 years before deciding that it didn’t totally align with my goals.?I specialise in realism work, with a focus in portraiture.
My goal in tattooing as of now is to be able to translate my realism drawings onto skin perfectly, and to produce original all-hand drawn designs which are true to a subject’s form, not stylised but not simply copying a photo onto skin.
