My name is Ryan Newman


I am a tattoo artist from Johannesburg.


The styles I like doing is Black and grey realism, geometry and horror portraiture and anything with a crazy amount of detail. However I will not turn away any of my clients because I’m a diverse artist and can do just about any tattoo style.


I decided I wanted to become a tattoo artist after seeing my uncle’s tattoos and how super detailed they were, however I’ve always been artistic and tattooing is one of the most difficult mediums to work with so I thought why not. I started my apprenticeship part time when I was 16 and still attending school, I left school and have been involved in the tattoo industry for about 5 years now.


I did my first tattoo when I was 17, people do sometimes underestimate me because of my age but I can do clean work and always strive for perfection in any tattoo style I do. I live for tattooing it’s the air I breathe, I just can’t get enough of it. I’ve worked for 2 other big studios and have had a lot of help improving my art. I will always thank my mentor for the knowledge and the guidance he has given me. I have never and will never look back.
