HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN TATTOOING, WHAT WAS YOUR EXPERIENCE LIKE GETTING INTO THIS CAREER?

I've been tattooing for just over 3 years, and making art for most of my life. In my late teens I became fascinated with tattooing and started getting tattooed regularly in my early twenties. Being in tattoo shops always gave me so much inspiration to work harder and make more art. I had never in my life been exposed to such dedicated practicing artists as I was when I started getting tattooed. In my early adulthood, I turned to nightlife and performing as a DJ as an easy fix to gratify my creative impulses, but I knew that was a means to an end and definitely not a sustainable lifestyle for an introvert like me. When I discovered tattooing, I felt like I had found my people and I wanted to break free from the chaotic lifestyle of the Melbourne club scene. I put my head down and made more art than ever. It was a very isolating and sobering time in my life. I had several conversations with Eugene, an artist I was getting tattooed by regularly, about starting my own career as a tattooer, and eventually he reached out to me when Heretic was looking to take on a new apprentice. I didn't even get an interview the first time I applied, but a few months later I applied again and was taken on board. Having Eugene and also Lilli as friends on the inside definitely helped me get to where I am today. 

WHAT'S YOUR PREFERRED STYLE & THE MAIN INFLUENCES BEHIND YOUR WORK?

I don't know what I would call my style. Blackwork folk surrealism? I have so many influences and I can't really pinpoint an exact style that I identify with. I can never tattoo enough birds. 

What are the main influences & inspiration behind your artwork?

There are so many. I feel like my most referenced styles of art are Ukiyo-e era Japanese compositions (Hokusai, Hiroshige), American traditional tattooing styles, 1800s era wildlife illustration and botanical art, Art Nouveau (in particular Erté, Beardsley etc.) and of course I am inspired by many tattoo artists, some who still tattoo today and some who I only know by legacy. I have said before that I am inspired by tattooing as a medium in general. When I am designing a tattoo or flash design, it is important for me to ask myself: "Is this tattoo for everybody? Can I see this design working on all bodies and all skin tones? Will this tattoo be recognisable and visible from across the room?". I feel my best work is bold lined, with high contrast and strong use of negative space. Before tattooing I could never pinpoint an exact style in my art. In my first year or two tattooing I would tattoo a bit of everything. Only in the past 6 months I'd say I have found my groove in one style, but only through tattooing many different styles. Slowly my designs have evolved based off of what I enjoy doing the most. But I still feel as though my style will continue to evolve and grow as I do. 

GET IN TOUCH

I have been working at Heretic Tattoo in Fitzroy for almost four years. I did my apprenticeship at Heretic and have been tattooing full time for a little over 3 years. I am currently fully booked until the beginning of October and my books are closed. I will be opening my books for new appointments in October-December hopefully in mid-September. If you want to stay updated on when I will be taking bookings again, you can follow me on Instagram (@acmayc). However, if you wish to make a booking at Heretic, there are so many talented artists in our team who are taking appointments in the more immediate future!

**Heretic Tattoo, as well as all other tattoo studios in Melbourne, are currently closed due to government restrictions.
