Since he can remember, Thys has been in love with art. Spending his time with realism and fantasy drawings - he needed an outlet, and found it through tattooing. Thys has been a tattoo artist since 2010, and since then, has found his niche. He finds inspiration by marrying the true essence of realism with a vivid imagination and abstractionism. He has an undoubtable talent in fine arts and a skilled eye for depth and detail. This allows Thys to add his signature to whatever ideas he may be presented with. During his time as a tattoo artist, Thys has built up an esteemed reputation that now precedes him - and tattoos many of SA’s celebrities, including John Vlismas (Comedian), DJ Fresh and DJ Catherine (5FM), Pippa Tshabalala (The Verge) and The Parlotones! He was also invited to do a guest artist spot at the infamous Westside Tattoos in Colorado USA in 2011 and will return to the States this year to tattoo in Las Vegas! Thys travels across South Africa, tattooing his ever growing clientele in Cape Town and KZN.
