Duncan X is a living icon in British tattooing

Duncan X was born in 1965, and raised in south-east London. Punk music hit him when he was about 13. He soon started drawing and playing music, until he met Dennis Cockell, who taught him tattooing. But this is only how the history begins… there is much more. His artworks in black are truly powerful and simply unique. There is no definition for his style except for genuine, which means they are deeply related with human life, desires, regrets and dreams that represent choices and reality for us all. You should take a look, if interested in something beyond all the rules and the wear and tear of life.
