Ben Rorke is not only one of the best tattooers to come out of Australia – he’s without a doubt one of the hardest working too. I met Ben through a mutual friend of ours back about 7 or 8 years ago now. Back when green zombie tattoos were cool - I got my first tattoo (No I didn’t get a green zombie, I got a web – the green zombie was my second haha). Ever since, we’ve been bro’s. Ben has been a big inspiration of mine from the start and was for sure one of the guys who inspired me enough to not only pursue my own personal art career but also to start Few and Far Collective – if it wasn’t for this guy, I wouldn’t have a green zombie girl on my forearm, ¾ of the tattoos on my body or who knows what? I owe a lot to this guy.
