Love is a lesson to learn in our time

I did this yellow wagtail tattoo earlier this week. I always enjoy doing tattoos in one session, it makes a nice change. Even a fire alarm half way through didn’t manage to stop us getting it done;

I do a lot of koi so it’s hard to think of too much to say about them;

Here is a healed pic of the piece I did at this years tattoo jam;

Now for a musical interlude, I have been loving this song all week so I am sharing it with you. As a guitar player of very limited ability this blows me away, and it’s beautiful as well;


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.
