Brett Talks Scars, Lego and Music (And Tips for Planning a Tattoo Sleeve)

Tattoo Story: Brett Kirsten

Brett started his tattoo sleeve with a flaming cue ball with his lucky number 4 at age 18 at the start of his adventure in the music industry. He has worked with bands like Tweak, The Parlotones, Prime Circle, Crash Car Burn and Jessie Clegg to name a few, but recently left his career as a stage manager after 15 years to join the SuperSport team as a Sports Editor. He still wears his heart proudly on his sleeve through his (nearly full) body art that celebrate his love of music and his delightfully colourful collection of artworks dedicated to legos and comics.


Brett is fondly known as True Blue Professional Tattoo Studio’s first client, and he has spent an estimated 100 hours in the chair with Meghan-Ann and we look forward to seeing him every month. Watch his story, and hear his advice on planning a great tattoo sleeve:
