Josie Keable (Unic0rn Vomit) is an Illustrator & Tattoo Artist, who currently lives in a seaside town along the South Coast. They love to explore the natural shapes and colours the world provides, whilst also referencing popular culture.
They graduated from the University of Portsmouth with a First class degree in BA (Hons) Illustration in 2018 and also completed the training requirements to be recognised as an 'Adobe Certified Associate, Visual Design Specialist CC 2015'. They were involved with Aspex Gallery’s ‘Surface Tension’ and ‘PONToon’ projects and also helped out with their weekly ‘Mini Makers’ workshops.

Since graduating, Josie undertook a tattoo apprenticeship and is currently tattooing out of Old Sarum Tattoo & Piercing, Salisbury, where they now do vegan-friendly cruelty-free tattoos. Not one to limit themselves, Josie likes to work in an array of styles including full-colour, anime/manga, dotwork, watercolour, brushwork and traditional.
