George has worked at his tattoo parlor in West London for over 40 years, and has been practicing the art of the tattoo for over 50. In the video, he details his affinity for Japanese design and how it influences his work, as well as the myriad of ways in which an industry titan like himself can still find new things to learn in the world today.

From April 30-May 1, the Brighton Tattoo Convention takes place in the iconic English seaside town and rounds up some of the best tattoo artists in the world.
