I am a blogger, writer and digital marketer, based in Warwickshire, UK.
In 2017, my tattoo blog Inkluded was awarded the title of best ‘Arts & Culture‘ blog in the UK Blog Awards.
TATTOO JOURNALISM & BLOGGING
I am Director, Founder and Editor of leading UK tattoo blog Inkluded. I single-handedly manage (and originally built) the website on which I now research, write and publish all of the digital content (with occasional guest writers). I run the brand’s social media presence across multiple channels.
I also contribute monthly to Skin Deep tattoo magazine. I write regular features and have an ongoing column.
I have written in the past for other tattoo blogs including Tattoodo, always with a strong focus on SEO.
Other tattoo magazines that I have contributed to before include Tattoo Master which is Europe’s leading publication for artists working within the tattoo industry.
SOCIAL MEDIA & DIGITAL MARKETING
I have just under a decade’s experience in events marketing and PR for UK organisations. My specialisms are digital marketing, relationship management and social media marketing.
I have managed marketing campaigns for a variety of theatre, music, comedy and outdoor events. My most recent undertaking was executing the social media strategy for the RSC and Intel, specifically for their groundbreaking show The Tempest which utilised live motion-capture on stage in a production for the first time in history.
I work with brands to optimise and increase their social media reach, engagement and monetisation through inventive campaigns and regular performance analysis. I also specialise in SEO and work with companies to drive traffic to their website through blog content.
I have an advanced understanding of content management systems, Google Analytics, Google Adwords, Google Adsense and various email marketing systems, customer management databases and social media management programmes.
EVENTS AND EXHIBITIONS
I was raised in a family of event planners and was exposed to this industry from an early age. I previously worked as an event co-ordinator and wedding planner for our Lancashire-based family business.
In 2015, I curated a small-scale UK tattoo exhibition in the Midlands. Inked Palette showcased the work of tattoo artists from all around the country for a 3 week period at an art gallery in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire.
I implemented a press and marketing campaign for the exhibition and secured a high volume of press coverage as a result.
MUSIC / FILM JOURNALISM
TATTOO INDUSTRY CONSULTATION AND MAINSTREAM PRESS
As a prominent voice in the UK tattoo industry I have previously worked as a consultant for television and radio programmes focusing on tattooing.
I also often speak to publications about the role of tattoos today and seek to accurately represent the tattooed people of the UK in these mainstream media forms, through interviews, video blogs or photoshoots.
More about some of these collaborations here.
POETRY & CREATIVE WRITING
I write poetry over on my writing blog Everything Ends. I’m currently working on various short stories and creative writing zines.
