Barber DTS are delighted to announce the arrival of new starter: Melissa Moore.
Melissa joins us as Wholesale Sales Coordinator. Melissa had the following to say about starting:
"I have recently joined the team as Wholesale Sales Coordinator, I will be assisting Richard Hale with wholesale tattoo distribution. This is a whole new challenge and industry for me, having previously worked in the travel industry and recruitment. I am looking forward to working with international customers and working in the tattoo industry, I have a keen interest in fashion and getting my first tattoo is in progress."
A warm welcome to Melissa and we wish her all the success in her new role.
We are proud to announce that we are now sponsoring Vintage Tattoo studio in Farnworth.
In Mike's own words:
"I started learning to tattoo 3 years ago. I was learning off a local aritst in Manchester, but as the weeks went on I realised the studio wasn’t at the level I expected.
I spent months reading forums on Nick Baxter’s and Mike Devries’ web sites trying to learn as much as I could, I then moved to Bolton as a friend had opened a studio where I worked pretty much self taught until 2014. He then shut his studio down and it was at that point I decided to open my own studio.
I teamed up with my friend James Davies and we opened up in Aprl 2014. Since this date, things have gone crazy and my work has progressed no end. Now working in partnership with James the studio is going from strength to strength I have invested heavily through Barber dts to make sure we have the best resources available on the market today in order that my team can produce the best quality work possible James and I have built a strong and diverse team of artists around us who are both personally ambitious and passionate for the progress of the studio.
It is just an amazing time to be a tattooist. To achieve what we have in 7 months makes me excited for James and I to hit the conventions hard next year and to push my tattooing as far as I possibly can."
My favorite tattooists
Dean Taylor, John Anderton, Niko Hurtardo, Mike Devries, Carl Grace, Bob Tyrell
My style of tattooing
My work at the minute is pretty much black grey portraits and realism. I have done other sytles of tattooing within my career, but these i love the most, I am however hoping to start doing colour portraits in the New Year."
