Hewy designs was Est 1990, by Hewy with a loan from PYBT (now know as The Prince's Trust) hewy wanted to be a graphic designer but due to being dyslexic and schooled in the 80s, art school was not going to happen it was the sign of them times No English cse No art school it was that simple. But that never stopped hewy in following his dream, so leaving college one day after having a epiphany to become a paint sprayer, which he did. Years spent being a apprentice and then ending up at Lotus cars Hethel. He then faced unemployment, this was a new start after being helped by a good friend hewy picked up a airbrush for the 1st time and started do custom work from that friends garden in a shed, after a good summer of 1990, he found PYBT after going on a course the job centre was running. This went on to what is now HEWY DESIGNS, hewy airbrushed for 10 years running the business from a small workshop in North Elmham, in the mid 90s hewy was asked if he would like to train as a tattooist, this took hewy on a different path, after a few ups and downs he ended up in studio in March in cambs, then after a good few years he started tattooing closer to his home, and in 2003 he was tattooing in Norwich and this is where he now tattoos in his own studio called HD13.
