Bex Lowe

Bex's style of tattooing comes from her love of gaming, comic books and animation. In 2011 she started her tattoo apprenticeship after graduating from university with a master's degree in video game design.

Although she's able to turn her hand to most style of tattooing, she's happiest doing bright colour and bold lines. She loves pin-ups, Japanese and anything nerdy.

Growing up, Cherub was obsessed with anything artistic! She studied art at college & university, and very quickly realised tattooing is where she wanted to be.  She loved the idea of being able to put a piece of artwork on someone’s skin and knowing it would last them forever.

She is just coming up to her 8th year of tattooing and is still loving every minute.  Cherub is well known for specialising in abstract watercolour, geometric and dotwork, and a whole host of styles in-between.  If you would like to discuss your own unique design with Cherub, drop by the studio, where she will be sure to greet you with a huge smile and a whole host of ideas!

Col Cooper
