Archiebald Cook - Senior Resident Artist


Archiebald Cook is a multi-award-winning artist. Versatile in a number of styles with a keen interest in oriental and realism. Archie is a talented artist in both colour and black and grey and has won a number of awards in both these categories.

Mentored by his father (Matt Cook of the Sharp Practice, Salisbury) Archie started tattooing pig skin at the age of 9 and started tattooing real when he was 13.
In his teenage years, he was recognized by multiple magazines for his work, moving on to win awards in multiple categories around England.

Building a solid reputation in many styles of tattooing, Archie has built a well-established client base with the likes of international footballers on his books.

Archie opened his first studio in Ringwood in May 2017 and made the move to Southampton in 2021 where we now have 12+ resident artists and numerous international guest artists throughout the year.

Over the last few years, Archie and the Kookie Tattoo team have visited a number of conventions where Archie has won awards.
