- George Scharfenberg Tattoos
- Belfast, Northern Ireland
I've been tattooing since 2000.I work at Belfast City Skinworks in Belfast, Ireland. Skinworks is a busy studio that sees a lot of clients and our aim is to customise as much work as possible.
I ended up in the tattoo industry through my uncle who's a tattooist. I started hanging around his studio from the age of 16. Helping out whenever I had free time from college, mainly drawing up designs and helping clean. When I was 18 I was offered the chance to tattoo but declined as I didn't think I had the confidence to do such a demanding job. I went on to study graphic design at college. But shortly after finishing college I was given a second chance to tattoo. I grabbed it, and I have never looked back.
I would say my range is fairly versitile as far as the design content goes. For a long time I did mainly black & white pieces but now I have a strong portfolio in colour and increasingly I'm busy with cover up pieces which are a whole different kind of tattoo. I hope you enjoy the site - check out my galleries in the portfolio page, or my own art work too, and feel free to get in touch or leave some comments through my contact page. Thanks for looking!
Good luck, George
