State of the Art 2011

Such a great weekend, had great fun and met some great people. Just can't wait to work the next one now! Want to tell everyone to check out: - Chris and Brenden did some stunning work over the weekend and were really friendly guys. - Faye was working next to us and helped us out loads. She started and Finished a cowgirl pin up over the convention that ended up looking sweet. I also got to do a little tattoo on Elsa the piercer there, great studio up in Sheffield. - We met Chardaine, Jamma Dodger and Jack at the pre show party and was great to talk tattoos to. They did some big work over the weekend and there's a lot of good stuff to look at on the website. - I tattooed Adam and his apprentice Kelly with a couple of small tattoos. Another great studio who were set up along our row. Adam did some really nice fun tattoos, and it was a great way to end by tattooing him.

Everyone we met were a pleasure to talk to, from other tattooists to customers to people just stopping by, was a really friendly atmosphere which carried on throughout the weekend.

Unfortunately we didn't take a picture of every tattoo we did but here's a couple

Summer piercing deal!

So along with out Facebook fan page deal, our local friendly piercer Alice is offering a loyalty card scheme with piercings. It is usually get 4 and have the 5th for free, but until the end of August she is offering every third piercing for free! You can share the card with your friends, or keep it all to yourself, but pay for 2 piercings and get number 3 for nothing. Just phone up the shop to see when she's in and then come pick up your loyalty card.

Eva has also started her own blog so for just her work, have a look at

And just a reminder, next weekend we will be working at the State of the Art convention in Derby, and unfortunately we will be shut on Friday and on the Saturday.

And here's what we've been up to in the shop;

This is the start of a half sleeve designed by Jo, there's going to be some clouds and heavenly gates added to it along with some doves.

Managed to finish Christian's Rose, and will get started on the next one soon. Only managed to get a camera phone picture, sorry for the quality.

And I got to start off the week with this drag queen pin up on Teagan. Going to put colour in it later on and we're getting started on another on the other foot on thursday.
