Hi, my names Becky but most people know me as Bexx.
I started my journey in tattooing in 2008 at Micky Sharpz old shop in Birmingham UK. I received a very traditional apprenticeship that was extremely tough at times, but I made it out of the other end with an increased respect for the tattoo industry.
I moved around the UK a bit, perfecting my craft and settled in sleepy Malvern to get married and do all the grown up things you’re supposed to do over the age of 30.
I started Number Nine Tattoo as a private Tattoo studio in 2014, and I am based in a cosy, private room in the same premises.
My interest in medical tattooing began, when a client asked me to ‘fix’ her failed Areola tattoos. I have never been so terrified but I did my best with the knowledge I had at the time.
In 2019, I decided to take additional training in medical tattooing with a particular interest in improving scars. My personal tattoos, although of a decorative nature, are covering scars from my past and I found the confidence I gained by not being reminded of a troubled teen life, extraordinary. I wanted to offer this to my clients too, and I am aware that not everyone wants body art coverage like myself. Camouflaging and improving scars, is something I feel very honoured to be able to offer.
I joined ART as a certified Areola artist in late 2019. ART is very important to me, as it really does set a very high standard of work, understanding of breast reconstruction and the different techniques required to create a permanent and realistic Nipple and Areola complex successfully with minimal damage to the skin.
I meet so many strong people in my career, and all of them inspire me each and every day. My mission is to empower as many people as I can. Confidence is key, and if there is anything I can help with to ensure people are enjoying life to the full then it is my vocation to do so.
