Adam Hawkes

Adam Hawkes, with 13 years of experience in the tattoo industry, has been a loyal artist of Skins and Needles for around 8/9 years of his career. He is a self-taught realism artist who is able to comfortably switch up his game and work in various different styles, providing top class results, whether he’s working in black and grey or colour.

Working on a large-scale canvas is one of his favourite options, for example back pieces, as this gives him the chance to freely project his creativity and talent within a certain theme or unique custom design.

We asked Adam what his favourite aspect of his job is, for which he told us “meeting new people and working with their ideas to produce a creative design”. We also asked him where he gets his inspiration which he responded with “Working around so many great artists”. He also stated that what he loves most about working at Skins and Needles is that he gets so much artistic freedom to let his creativity come to life.

He has a deeply loyal client base and is extremely popular with our clientele; he is usually fully booked 6 to 8 months in advance, but as his client base always say he is definitely worth the wait!
