Pascal has a background in Marketing and Law, and 2015, while pursuing his legal career, Pascal started EasyTatt™ as a passion project on the side.

Declan is hands down the most rad dude in the team! Declan is a tattoo artist who has enjoyed drawing from a very young age. He started skateboarding in in 1988 which he says has shaped him tremendously with music, art and culture. Illustrators such as famed Powell Peralta artist VCJ that painted all the classic 80s skateboards including Tony Hawk and Mike Mcgill and the rest of the Bones Brigade. Declan says seeing tattoos on skaters in the videos from the 80s planted the seed in tattoo art. “I remember in high school a teacher saying my art was very “tattoo like”. Not sure if it was a positive or negative comment but I took it in my stride.” Declan also started playing heavy metal guitar at a young age and to this day, heavy metal album covers continue to influence his art. Declan is a massive fan of the traditional Japanese style. Declan loves the mythical creatures, the beauty of natural scenes depicting Trees, mountains, water, animals as well as the extreme nature of the Samurai and their romantic existence. “The wood block prints and paintings work perfectly as tattoos on the human body like it was meant to be there, the way the composition works on the body, the flow, the movement, the colours and the rules of how certain animals and elements work in harmony is beautiful. I love that creating art is something that will always progress and you will never fully master which will always give you a new challenge from day to day.” Declan has worked as a professional tattoo artist for many years but has also shifted focus to freelance illustration as it gives him a sense of freedom and suits his personality and lifestyle perfectly.

HOW IT BEGAN
The founder, Pascal Tolley, began developing EasyTatt™ in 2015. EasyTatt™ is a true grass roots story started by a uni student who had an idea and a passion for art, especially, tattoo art!
The concept for EasyTatt™ came while Pascal was in the decision-making phase of getting a real tattoo. If you've ever wanted a tattoo but have never actually been able to decide on a design, Pascal can relate. For Pascal, the problem was not being able to truly test drive the designs that he was considering.
Pascal knew about temporary tattoos but he wasn't able to find a company that could print his original design in limited quantities. Those that could print custom designs required minimum order quantities of 500 or more. This was not suitable for Pascal but it created his 'Aha' moment. After 18 months of research and product development, and heavy investment in printing technology, EasyTatt™ was born.
First and foremost EasyTatt™ is not about replacing real tattoos, in fact, we embrace tattoos by giving customers greater confidence when it comes to getting their real tattoo. Using the latest in non-permanent tattoo printing technology, we aim to provide users with greater peace of mind and certainty when it comes to visiting the tattoo parlor. Experimenting with different designs and sizes without commitment is not only smart, it's also really fun! Remember, EasyTatt tattoos aren't just for people who plan on getting inked, they are also a great fashion accessory and work well for events.
Use state-of-the-art temporary tattoo technology to stop regretful tattoos and give everyone, young and old, the freedom to test drive various tattoo designs and sizes before getting inked for real. Provide unique ways for businesses and sporting clubs to promote themselves, and add a little more fun to private parties and celebrations.
To be the first thing that comes to people's minds when they start the decision-making phase of getting a real tattoo. To build a diverse community of talented tattoo artists and illustrators, and give them the opportunity to expose their work to new audiences.
