Jack Goks – Neo Traditional Tattoo Artist
“Cannot fault my experience atall and I now have the best tattoo ever from Jack.
Great shop, incredible artists and I wouldn’t hesitate to come back. So worth the wait.” ~Spooky Kabuki
“Cloak and Dagger is a professional and clean establishment, and the staff are all very welcoming. Got my tattoo done by Jack Goks and it was my best tattoo experience to date. He was very enthusiastic, the design was exactly what I wanted and the colouring looks amazing.” ~Maximilian Greeves
“Came here today for my first big tattoo with Jack and had it done on my foot. He was lovely as can be, considering how nervous I was, and was open to any little tweaks I wanted and was very accommodating. He did all he possibly could to make me feel comfortable and I will most definitely be back for more of his work.” ~Lara Famy
Jack joined the team in early 2014 but began tattooing back in 2012. Jack demonstrated a high level of artistic skill even as a child so it was only natural that he hoped to pursue a career that would make use of his creativity. He was born and bred in North London. His first exposure to tattoo was when he was about 10 years old, when he saw his father getting a tattoo. This and other experiences sparked his ever growing passion for tattooing.
Upon completion of his fine arts degree, Jack took an apprenticeship at Ink Lounge. He developed his unique Neo-Traditional style of tattooing and also picked up a few tattoos of his own. His favourites include a sleeve by Philip Yarnell and pieces by Alex Dorfler.
Jack sees the Neo-Traditional style as a way of portraying highly detailed illustrational quality in a simple way. His designs are simple and flat but also demonstrate a 3D edge with bold use of colours. He loves being given the opportunity to tattoo within his style, especially when it comes to portraiture.
We will be closed from the 17th December until the 3rd January for a refurbishment and Christmas. Happy holidays!!!
