Jordan Coyle (Jordy) was born in and grew up in Paisley. He always had a fascination for recreating interests/icons on paper since he was a kid, with a crayola art case in tow and it's still the same now with the tattoo machine.
He served an apprenticeship in 2013 within a Glasgow studio and has been in tattooing since. He has a real passion for his work especially realism, comic book, pin-up’s and portraits but is more than competent with any tattoo style.
Even when he’s not in the studio he will always seems to find something to get creative with or draw on. He has a keen eye for detail, a bit of a perfectionist, and will always take the time to work with you on any ideas.
Peppe is from Taormina in Sicily. He has drawn ever since he was a child and as a teenager he started to copy from tattoo books. It was there that he saw his first tattoo machine and at that moment his dream was born.
For a young guy growing up in Sicily, he had to put his dream to one side as a tattoo machine was just too expensive, however at the age of 21 he found that book again in the library. Now older, he was excited that the dream could come true at last and he saved and finally bought his own machine. He completed a two year tattooing apprenticeship in his home town.
The desire to learn made him leave Italy and he's spent time in the UK working and studying his dream. He has developed his talent into realism tattooing and portraits. He has pushed himself by attending several seminars, trying to learn as much as possible and listen to his peers within the industry.
Today his job is his hobby and his passion. However he likes to paint with oils and acrylic and also study colour combinations, contrast and how they look on different areas of the anatomy. Details make the difference, thats it!
