“One day, many many moons ago, Wally got his first tattoo. He promptly fell in love with his newly tattooed arm and subsequently the art of tattooing forever and ever. To this day he loves the creativity and the craft of tattooing, not to mention the colourful characters he meets along the way”

Wally is the resident tattooist & big boss at UGT.

He has been tattooing since 1998, training in his craft in Sydney, Australia, where he was tattooing professionally for several years. Until recently , he has been working in Stigmata Tau (Swords, Dublin). He has also worked in Skin Graphics (now Original Skin), and Celestial Ring (now Wildcat Ink)

Wally is well experienced in most styles of tattooing (see gallery) and is well known both
nationally and internationally for his evocative and fluid freehand Polenesian & Tribal work.
Having lived Down Under for over ten years he has had extensive personal & professional
exposure to Polyenisian art, culture and tradition. These experiences greatly influence his work, tattoo & life style today.
