ShoeTattoos was established in 2015. I love shoes, and drawing, so this is the perfect job for me. I started painting shoes when I ran out of cash to buy new ones so revamped some old Toms. Word got around and I was surprised to receive requests for customisation.Over the years I have amazed myself with how my style has developed and I can paint anything you can imagine onto any surface. I take a great deal of care in my work and each piece is special to me.
You *may* notice a social activism theme that runs throughout. I unapologetically stand up for a fair and equal society where we can all live peacefully and respectfully together regardless of gender, religion, sexuality, skin colour or how much money we have. I have a vision of a world that my son can be free to choose what he wants to do with his life and who he wants to love and not be held back by skin colour or social status or any other obstacle. I want him to not live in fear of nuclear war or poverty.
I’m Vegan and the paints and brushes I use are Vegan too, except for the leather paints. All packaging is biodegradable. I home educate and my son is so proud of ShoeTattoos. He is my companion, inspiration, and quality control manager as well as personal trainer and giver of much love and laughter. He also offers his services as FunDoodles, so if anyone wants a pair drawn by my apprentice, or a custom doodle by a younger doodler, message me. We live peacefully and respectfully with our menagerie of rescued animals.
