Benny Bones was born in Rotorua, New Zealand, and lived there until he his early teens and then moved to Tauranga. In 2001, he moved to Melbourne along with his family. He has worked on art in many different forms and states that growing up in a place like New Zealand had a huge part to play in his artistic abilities and becoming a tattooist.

When he moved to Melbourne, especially being in a big city, things really started to kick off for him. From that moment forward, his new hometown started to throw many enticing opportunities at him.

While Bones’ art style lies between Oriental and Neo-Traditional, he has based most of his career around Japanese artwork. To Bones, it’s a “form of tattooing that has withstood the tests of time, and so much is influenced off it”. Darkness is a common theme he gravitates towards, featuring motifs such as skulls, severed heads and wrathful deities.

Even though he often has a lot of fun with the designs he makes, he also prefers to not focus on any rules and let himself perform his magic without any hesitation. Bones began tattooing ten years ago at the Living Canvas Studio in Eltham and was apprenticed under Scott Boys, who currently owns the Eruption Tattoo Art Studio in Macleod. Bones states that he’s extremely grateful for the fact that Boys gave him a chance. Bones woke up one morning and decided to walk into a shop to ask for a job in the industry. He then walked in and showed the tattoo parlour a portfolio of non-tattoo related drawings and sketches Bones had from art school.

He worked at Living Canvas for five years before moving to Korpus Tattoo Studio in Brunswick where he works to this day. Bones has been lucky enough to work alongside plenty of talented artists including Alvaro Flores, Steve Cross, Mayo, Andrea Daniel, Samantha Sirianni and plenty of special guests. He has treated Korpus like a particular school for himself and claims that his time there has been invaluable.

While he hasn’t been known to tattoo celebrities, Bones has had the opportunity to tattoo Alexisonfire and City and Colour frontman Dallas Green and his wife while they were on tour for City and Colour. Bones has also tattooed Slats, bassist of King Parrot, who he counts as one of his friends.

Bones feels that his future in being part of the tattoo industry is going to be a bright one and is planning on travelling sometime next year, including a visit to the Brighton Convention in the UK with a fellow tattooist and friend Stu Pagdin. Bones will also take part in some local conventions in Australia, such as the Rites Of Passage Festival in Melbourne.
