About Helen Aldous
After completing a degree in Graphic Design and Illustration at Staffordshire University I worked as a designer in various areas of the advertising and media industries. I also contributed illustrations to various magazines and publications.
I have completed a professional apprenticeship to become a tattooist. I tattoo out of Good Karma Tattoo Studio, Huddersfield where I can be contacted for appointments. Tattooing is a natural place for my work and I enjoy the challenge of the human canvas and creating a unique piece of art for each client.
My work is often influenced by the countryside around my home in Holmfirth, Huddersfield, West Yorkshire.
