Working in partnership with fellow Belfast Tattoo Collective artists GeorgePaul and Sam, Janine is an experienced tattoo artist Belfast customers repeatedly come to, and has been doing tattoos now for twenty years. After finishing her apprenticeship in Manchester she traveled around before returning to Ireland and opening her own tattoo shop in Fermanagh which she ran for ten years. During this time Janine won awards for her work in the UK, Ireland and the U.S.A.

After a brief stint at Belfast City Skinworks, where, at the time she was the only female Tattoo Artist, Janine decided to leave and make Belfast Tattoo Collective her new working home. This tattoo artist Belfast calls their own considers herself to be an all rounder, enjoying the challenge of cover-up tattoos and reworking old pieces. Celtic Tattoos are a style very much favoured by her which she enjoys putting her own stamp on.

Primarily working in Colour, this particular female tattoo artist Belfast customers, and fellow tattoo artists, respect and admire enjoys Nature based designs, be they animal, mineral or vegetable!! and floral themed pieces. As with the other Belfast Tattoo Collective Artists, Janine enjoys that Artist and Customer get to be very involved with the creation of each piece and using an organic approach to developing unique tattoos that best reflect the personality of each customer.

Other styles she enjoys working in, and is enthusiastic about, are Art Nouveau, Abstract, Mehndi and textile patterns, and a lot of things with a Folk Art twist.

Janine is highly experienced and very competent working over scar tissue and is proud to have worked on the scars of many Breast Cancer Survivors.

With a definite feminine slant to her work, this particular tattoo artist is just as happy working on small pieces as on large scale work. Religious imagery and Folk Magic Art also hold great interest for her.

‘ I am very fortunate to have been tattooing for this amount of time and am very happy to be working alongside the guys here. They are helpful and encouraging, we push each other on and it is  great place to work. Clean, bright, relaxed and with the kettle close by!! I would like to thank all the folks who have had work from me over the years for putting their faith in my abilities’.
