Artists

Kanae

Kanae

Kanae started tattooing in 2002 as the apprentice for Makoto Hasegawa’s Hocus Pocus Studio (Shizuoka, Japan). After studying from great Japanese artists, Kanae found that she was naturally drawn to the area of traditional Japanese tattoos. Each design that she makes is rooted in the stories and traditions of this artform.

Since relocating to the UK in 2007, Kanae has worked at Camden’s Evil From the Needle, and Mo Coppoletta’s The Family Business.

KY

KY

Ky grew up in London and has been tattooing from early 2013. He has since travelled with his career before joining the team at Nine Tails

With a strong artistic understanding of dynamics and geometry, Ky has become a very diverse artist in many styles but has developed a personal modern touch to the Japanese and neo-traditional style.
