Hi my name is James Brennan, Art has always been a massive part of my life. Raised by my mother who had to work two jobs to provide for me and my older brother and sister, I spent a lot of time with my nan. My nan was a natural artist and would always have a pencil and pad in my hands. I always remember my nan telling me "don't become an artist because you'll only make money when your dead".
When I was 15 years old I got my first tattoo and straight away I wanted to be a tattoo artist, but every time I asked the artist, how you become one, I just got shot down in flames.
Following suit to the generations of males in the family I joined the Army once I was 18 years old. Whilst serving I was always designing tattoos for my friends and still had a strong passion for art.
I met my now wife and we started a family, this and along with several deployments I decided that i need to find another way, I was fed up hearing "your not supposed to be happy going to work, thats why its called work". I wanted "if you can make a living, doing what you love, you'll never work a day in your life".
With these in mind and realising what my nan told me might not be 100% the truth, I asked around for apprenticeships but to no prevail, so I started to teach my self.
After 12 years in the military including 4 operational tours, I left and starting working as a professional tattoo artist.
My preferences in styles and what I'm more known for, are portraiture and black and grey realism.
