Al Boy – Traditional Tattoo Artist
“From booking and setting up with reception, to the info about aftercare, Cloak and Dagger were friendly and professional. Al Boy did a beautiful job on my tattoos. I’d recommend them to anyone, it was overall a completely lovely experience.” ~Francesca Muniesa
“Great experience at C&D; 1st tattoo, very relaxed, very welcoming, very professional…great job by Al Boy on the tattoo. Would go back in a heartbeat :)” ~Ed Shepley
“I got my first tattoo done here by Al Boy when I was in London about two weeks ago. He was super nice and made me feel relaxed and comfortable, and did a gorgeous job on my tattoo. I couldn’t be happier with it, he truly made it look better than I could have imagined it. Thank you! :)” ~Dara Epstein
Al became addicted to tattooing the moment he tried it. The year was 2010, in his home town, Como, Italy. He picked up several tricks of the trade from different tattoo artists but one made a significant impact on his life, his mentor, Stizzo.
His tattooing style is best described as traditional and romantic yet eccentric. He looks to the Renaissance for artistic inspiration and traditional American tattoo flash as a base. His style is influenced by artists such as Da Vinci, Rafaelo, Perugino, Hieronimus, Bosh, Daci and Caravaggio, to name a few.
He is passionate with what he does and continues to have a positive outlook in life. He takes to heart his grandfather’s advice: “Always do the thing that you like and never do what doesn’t make you happy.”
We will be closed from the 17th December until the 3rd January for a refurbishment and Christmas. Happy holidays!!!
