Hypno Ink. is the colaborative name for the work of hypnotists Benjamin Ryan and Christopher Phoenix, working in the area of pain free and reduced pain tattooing.
Formerly the keyboard player in Cradle of Filth, Benjamin began working with what people would readily recognise as hypnosis in the late 2000’s, training as a hypnotherapist with Anthony Jacquin in 2013.
Benjamin’s first experiments with pain and hypnosis were in 2012. With a self confessed short attention span, Benjamin has an interest in trying new things and pushing the boundaries, and found pain management to be a most fascinating field.
Based in Brisbane, Australia, Christopher specialises in working with tattoo artists for pain free tattoos under the name of Phoenix Hypnotatt.
Christopher’s hobby as a hypnotist for pain free and reduced pain tattooing turned professional after his appearance on Australia’s most popular national morning television show, Sunrise.
Since then, Christopher has also featured as the Commonwealth Banks Australian of the Day, been interviewed on Australia’s most popular national radio station Triple M, has be the subject of numerous national and international newspaper articles. Christopher has also starred in a music video-clip and a beer commercial.
Christopher and Benjamin were both active in these areas independently before making contact over the Internet, but a series of conversations led to the idea of working together on a book, and subsequently training courses and other works
