Henbo grew up in Manchester, where he worked odd jobs while going to university for illustration. He loved drawing and after receiving his first tattoo at the age of 21, he decided to try tattooing as a profession. Henbo scoured the tattoo shops of his neighborhood hoping to land an apprenticeship. “I was a complete outsider to tattooing. It’s not like any job where, if you’re good at it, you can do it,” he says. “Tattoo shops filter to see how serious you really are. Which I think is the reason why I got turned down so many times. But I honestly think that was good for me. Built thicker skin.”
Since moving from Manchester to New York City a few years ago, Henbo has worked on commission paintings, collaborating with streetwear brand Have a Good Time, illustrating hot sauce bottles and designing his own merchandise. “I just like to have fun. I think my personality just shows through these drawings. It still surprises me how many people like these characters so much,” says Henbo.
