Interview with Morgan Gatekeeper – Tattoo Artist

Last updated on: Published by: Scottsdale 0

How did you get started in Tattooing ?

I have always been nurtured as an artist and experimented in several different mediums before, beginning my apprenticeship at the age of 19.

What was your first tattoo ?

A Pisces symbol on my inner left ankle.

Do you have any artistic training prior to getting into the industry?

Just advanced high school art classes and some college design management background.

Who influence you a lot with your current tattoo style ?

My tattoo style inspiration stemmed from the artist Thomas Hooper. From there I learned about other artists that captured my attention like Dillon Forte, Rose Hardy, Aries Rhysing, and many more.

Do you find your work attracts a specific type of clientele ?

I would say the majority of my clientele is looking for something geometric, floral or ornamental. My style of drawing tends to attract a more “feminine” audience.

What’s your actual tattooing process like?

I do a solid combination of stenciling and freehand for my work. Most of the time I spend the first hour or so drafting out the project to fit the client properly. From there we begin the tattooing process and I do my best to keep my clients comfortable and happy.

How do you see your style evolving?

Hoping to continue to sharpen my skill set as time goes on.

What styles of tattooing covers your current body of work?

Geometric, blackwork, ornamental, floral, some traditional.
