Wurz's Bio


 

A long long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…

After a good few years working in numerous dead end building jobs and roadying for some punk bands, before running a small construction firm, Wurz decided that he’d rather not work for a living any more, preferring to draw, read comics and listen to what can only be described as an ear melting racket.

Wurz began tattooing in 1995 under the watchful eye of Scrow, after a couple of chance meetings where it was soon discovered that the pair of neer-do-wells had an awful lot in common, from a love of tattooing to some decidedly dodgy Chinese action movies. What followed over the next three years was going to be the blueprint for the future…

Wurz was comfortable trying his hand at every style of tattooing but soon discovered that he was happiest doing black and grey style ranging from full on Japanese pieces and bio mechanics to portrait work, with a healthy dose of comic strip style horror work along the way. Since then, with a lot of water running under the bridge, he’s managed to adapt his style to include religious, historical and pretty much any other style of tattooing that you’d care to mention, although if he was being honest he’d be the first to admit that he’s not massively into traditional style tattooing. Not a problem in the shop however as the other boys love that kind of thing!!

He’s worked at conventions all over the UK and in Europe, somehow managing to pick up some national and international awards along the way, along with being pleasantly surprised to find his work in numerous tattoo publications, and gracing former rock stars, babestation models and a good deal besides although nowadays he’s happiest in the shop, grafting as hard as possible to try and realize his clients’ tattoo dreams for them in whatever style they want- according to Wurz, its not about what he wants to do, its all about what the client wants him to do…

Rather than spending his time reminiscing about the golden days of tattooing, wurz sets his sights firmly towards the future, looking forwards to whatever comes in through the door next, whilst trying to concentrate equally hard on whatever he’s doing at the time. Who said blokes can’t multitask!!!


 

As to not working for a living, well, wurz reckons he probably works harder these days than ever, but since he absolutely loves what he does, day in and day out, he figures its not really work so it doesn’t count…
