Grace Howarth (Grey Sea) started her apprenticeship in tattooing in 2020 underneath Sharon L Merchant in the UK.
She has a chequered background in some pretty sublime areas, such as archaelogy, education and philosophy before finally making her passion for tattooing and art her full-time life at The Candle Orchard. She is set on developing her tattooing skills and traversing around different styles that she loves: predominantly blackwork, ornamental and dotwork. She enjoys creating custom, bespoke tattoos for clients and loves the challenge of incorporating personal meaning into each piece. She loves nature, travelling and literature which are elements often shown in the dark lines of her art which she uses as inspiration.
