Tattoo by David Corden (1)

For many years, David Corden worked as ventilation engineer, and only in 2006 did he begin tattooing under the apprenticeship of Jim Gambell from Ritual Art Tattoo. Currently a full-time artist at Gambell’s studio, Corden is recognized for his ink art of pin-ups, portraits, and wildlife.
