All cats are grey.

It is Liverpool tattoo convention this weekend and I am lucky to be all booked up, but as usual I will have some prints for sale and also some of these bags. Only a fiver!

Skull tote bag

I have nothing confirmed yet but I am trying to sort out a regular guest spot in London. If you are based there, or near there, and would like a tattoo from me, then please get in touch. Emailing the shop is probably best; info@modernbodyart.co.uk

It usually takes me months to update this blog but I have been very fortunate lately to have some customers asking for interesting stuff and giving me a lot of artistic freedom. As a consequence I have a load of new photos to post already, I hope you like them.

Here’s hoping you’re swell

I was at the London tattoo convention last weekend, just hanging out and catching up with people. It was nice but it definitely seemed quieter this year. I wonder if conventions are a bit pass√© now, or too expensive (¬£30 for one day!), or was it that some big names were absent or just one of those things? I am certainly a little bored and jaded of the convention scene, it seems to turn tattooing into a popularity contest; not something I wanna be a part of really. Anyway…

I have posted a pic of this piece when it was first finished as a half sleeve, it got extended down slightly and I finally got a healed photo;

I finished this koi sleeve a few weeks ago and grabbed this photo before the touch up session. Ideally a photo after the touch up is best but you don’t always get a chance so I get one when I can;

This is a lower back piece, two sessions, maybe 4 hours in total;

I have been painting quite a lot recently so hopefully by my next blog I will have some things finished.
