In this episode of #YMZStories series, we sit down with the popular tattoo artist, Thato Mokhadi to talk about the culture of tattoos and his tattoo shop; DiPowers Ink Tattoos based in Alexandra, Johannesburg.
From the early days of loving anything that has to do with art, Thato turned a personal passion into a business.
Before he opened his own tattoo shop in 2015, he was working with various tattoo artists sharpening his artistry in tattooing.
Thato’s passion for tattoos has also inspired him to start a clothing and Jewellery brand (inkGod) that has tattoos on them; this offers his clients not only skin branding but a clothing and jewellery line that they can identify with, which speaks to the individual.
