Grace Neutral – An interview with a unique Tattooist

Tagged with:

Hey Grace! Tell us who you are and what you do?

I’m Grace Neutral and I’m a tattoo artist!

You’re an exponent of hand-poked tattoos.. for the uninitiated, please explain what this is?!

It’s tattooing but without a machine. I just use a needle attached to a chop stick and that’s how I tattoo 🙂

When did you first start tattooing?

January 2012.

Are there any advantages to doing hand-poked tattoos than using a machine?

I’m not sure as I’ve never learnt how to use a machine! It was just a technique that I was really drawn to.

You’ve recently started selling your designs on tees via Etsy! Do you think merchandising is important to the tattoo industry?

Yeah defo! Merchandise is a great way to get your art out there and also a great way for people who can’t get tattooed by you because of distance etc, as a way of then owning something you have designed.

We have noticed that you have been tie-dying knickers & socks.. any other merch plans for your Etsy store?

Hell yeah there is always random ideas popping into my head!

You have A LOT of followers on Instagram. Do you think it’s the best social platform for tattooists to use to promote their skills?

Maybe right now yes… just because it’s so popular but you never know what social media site is going to take off next! You can never know how long it will last.

If you could tattoo one person ever, who would it be and why?

Ummm probably my favourite musicians COCOROSIE … Just because there my favourite band ever and I would be the most honoured ever if they let me tattoo them!

You tattoo out of Good Times Tattoo in London but do you have plans to travel and tattoo around the world?

Yeah I would love I travel the world doing guest spots! I think I will travel a lot in the future.

If you could plan yourself the perfect day… what would you do? Money and travel are no issue!!

I would take my favourite person on a trip to allllll the sickest adventure parks around the world, I’d hit up Universal Studios, Disney World, Bush Gardens, the whole lot! Then finish it with a safari in Africa and a sleep over in some crazy tree house tent in the wilderness!

Anything else you’d like to say or promote?

HANNAH PIXIE SNOWDON! My number one lady, best mate and all round bad ass! I think she got some merch printed with you guys!

You can check out Grace’s Etsy store and Instagram page to buy tees & follow all her new tattoo work!
