Tributes have been paid to an “amazing tattooist” and family man, who died after a cancer battle.

Dad-of-three Richard Knight, aged in his late 30s, inked elaborate designs at his studio, Fine Line Tattooing, based in Maltings Lane.

Customer Danni Cook, 25, of Halstead, said: “Richard was a kind, caring and loving family man.

“I had the privilege of knowing him through his work in which he was an amazing and talented artist.”
