Born in London, raised in North Dublin and trained in Dublin City, Kim Bale has been part of the Irish tattoo industry for the last ten years. Beginning as a front-of-house assistant, Kim evolved to shop manager, trained as a body piercer, before beginning her apprenticeship under the tutelage of her residence shop Reinkarnated in Dublin's city centre. Kim brings her unique creativity to the emerging Irish tattoo art scene, and since completing her training she has tattooed many styles and developed a great cartoon style of her own. She really enjoys working with customers to design custom one-off piece they'll love. Her inspiration comes from artists such as Bartman Tattoos, Joe Capobianco, Jime Litwalk and David Tevenal to name just a few.
