Sleep When You're Dead

SWYD Tattoo & Barber shop is the brainchild of Mathew Pritchard, know for his years as a professional skateboarder and his on-screen pranks/stunts on the MTV hit series Dirty Sanchez, and more recently his series of long-distance triathlon races, endurance events and competitions. 



What got you into barbering?

It started when my dad used to take me to his gentlemen barber shop when I was about 12. I liked the idea of going to a barbers as a sort of manly retreat. 

What were you doing before your apprenticeship?

I was travelling. Thailand, New Zealand and Australia living the dream.

Fave barber?

I don't have one favourite barber, there's loads of awesome barbers out there and we have some awesome barbers in the shop too.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

Make raps, listen to rap. Hang out with friends, play on the XBOX, going out for drinks, a game of golf in the summer, just the usual stuff.
