Tyler B Murphy
Cape Town, South Africa
My introduction to the good life was through skateboarding. It increased when I started doing graffiti in 1994. The painting led me into a tattoo shop to do a mural, where I ended up getting a Saturday job, fetching and cleaning. After two years of weekends, I had finished school, and started a full time 5 year apprenticeship. I tattooed myself and my mates until 2001 when I started tattooing every day. When I opened my own shop, Sins of Style, I was able to limit the styles of work that I do, and it gave me the freedom to turn away work that I don’t find artistically rewarding. The easy pace of the shop gives me plenty of time to draw up most tattoos from scratch. Shortly after opening, two of my favourite people, Lee and David joined me to help increase the good life in the city bowl.
