Instagram Addicts

If you’re anything like me, you check Instagram before you even get out of bed in the morning. If you’re a normal and sane person, though, you probably don’t, but still think Instagram is cool. As far as tattooing goes, it seems to have become the favoured place for tattooers to instantly show the tattoos … Continue reading


Various Failures

The guys at MVL have put together a new photo book about life in the shop. The shop in Leeds is home to Diego Azaldegui, Sam Layzell, and Rosie Evans, and they’re all pretty awesome tattooers.

On Holiday This Week!

Sorry guys- there won’t be any posts this week! I’m having a little break while I sort myself out with my new job. I think it’s needed anyway; we all need a little break every once in a while! I’ll catch you all on the flip. Mel

Tattoo Discrimination Debate Continues

For years now, the idea of discrimination against those who have tattoos has inspired many a debate. I’m pretty sure you’ll have even seen things on this site before about it if you’ve been reading for a long time.

No Class: At least They’re Honest

The ‘shop’, called No Class, is a place where people can come in and tattoo themselves for free. I’m all about people doing whatever they want to do, and I … Continue reading
