Recent Tribal by Paul O'Rourke.

Here is a selection of tribal that Paul has been working on over the last few weeks. 
These include Tibetan-style geometrical dot-work designs and Polynesian pieces with Native American influences along with modern black tribal. The majority of this work is freehanded directly on to the skin to suit each clients shape and size ergonomically.
For an appointment with Paul contact the shop, Thank You.

So September is here again which means its time for The London Tattoo Convention. Before the convention we have some of our friends coming to guest spot with us here at Allstar. From the 25th-26th we will be joined by Oliver Peck & Dean Williams from Elm Street Tattoo (Dallas, Texas), Matt Beckerich from Kings Avenue (New York) and Beau Brady from Invisible NYC (New York). If interested in getting tattooed by any of these amazing tattooers you can email for more info.

It's been a while

I've been slacking a bit with posting stuff, but I will be keeping this more up to date in the coming weeks. If you want our most up to date news, your best bet is our Facebook Page or Instagram @mf_farrell for me and @jovendor for Jo, we update them pretty much daily. I've also been pretty bad at taking photos recently but I've got a new camera now, so in the coming weeks I'll be posting more work as well.
Jo and I will be working at the East Coast Tattoo Convention in November, which you should all have a look at, Jo's particularly looking forward to the hog roast, and we'll have a load of designs drawn up for that.
We'd also like to thank everyone we met at the Norwich Body Arts Festival, we had a great time there and tattooed a few nice pieces, looking forward to going back to that beautiful city next year.
Anyway, here are couple things we've had through the door recently


This is a photo of Cinderella all healed up on Teagan, we're working it into a half sleeve at the moment and we're not too far off from being finished right now

A happy bear with lots of honey for Layla, I'm going to be tattooing a goose on her on Monday in a similar style

And this Layla's russian doll that I did about 2 years ago now

Portsmouth Tattoo Convention

So the 28th/29th is just around the corner and we're all geared up ready for the Portsmouth Tattoo Convention! There aren't many advance discount tickets left, so get them while you can or pick them up at the door on the day. I've got a couple pieces booked in but I'll have space to tattoo walk ups on the day and talk about any old shit, so if you're going, then come by and say hi.
Andy will be keeping the shop open so everyone back at home won't be missing out. 
It's been a while since the last post, so I think I better post some pictures. We keep a more up to date feed on the shop on our facebook page, so join that and nothing will slip by.


What I like to do when someone has a rough idea and wants it done on the day

Music inspired piece

Here's a healed photo of Niran's fu dog. Tried a couple new things out and it turned out looking great

Snake on the chest

This is Freya Fox's warrior girl. She's half healed and half fresh in the photo
