Lottie's Loolaz has a strong background in art and design and specialises in realism tattooing.

Her creative passion was prominent well before she was a tattoo artist and prior to tattooing she worked as a graphic designer and studied art and design in college.

Her artistic interests shifted towards tattooing and she pursued an apprenticeship at Scream N' Ink Southampton to better her skills. Here she learnt how to tattoo in a traditional style.

However her growing love for realistic drawing soon took centre stage, this is where her real design flare was.

Lottie now specialises in realism, whether it's black and grey or vibrant colour. Her favourite subjects to tattoo are animals (especially furry ones), like big cats and dogs.

She takes pride in treating each tattoo as a personal gift, creating something special for her clients. For Lottie, tattooing is a therapeutic experience and she loves the fact that she can bring someone's idea to life, brightening their day.
