Free Tattoo Lessons: WHY?

There’s a news story from the Daily Mail that you guys have been sending over to me quite a lot. Admittedly, I try to keep away from the Daily Mail, because it makes me angry when I read their usual closed-minded bullshit. This time though, I actually agree with it. They’ve published a story online … Continue reading

Total Tattoo Magazine: Leeds Coverage

If you cast your mind back a couple of months, you can probably remember Neil Dallywater and I hanging out at the Leeds convention.

Review: Dutch Tattoo Studios

When Schiffer Publishing told me that they had a copy of my friend André van Zomeren’s book, Dutch Tattoo Studios, to give me, I got super excited instantly. I’ve known André for a while now, and I’ve even briefly worked on some small projects for him. He’s the go-to-guy for anything to do with the … Continue reading


Are Tattoo Artists Rich?

Anj Marth is a really cool tattooer and fantastic blogger. She’s been tattooing since the 90s, and works at High Priestess and Laughing Buddha in America, as well as a billion other things like photography, writing books, and graphic design. Her website is a total time-pit, as you’ll spend ages looking through everything there (and maybe … Continue reading

Can’t Please Everyone

Every once in a while, you’ll see opinion pieces in mainstream media where someone starts randomly slagging off tattooing, just for the sake of people clicking on the links and reading it for adverts. It’s absolutely shameless, and I’ve always encouraged people to not even bother clicking on them, because those who click-bait should be … Continue reading


Review: Flash from the Bowery

Schiffer Publishing makes some really awesome tattoo books. One of those books is Flash From the Bowery, which they brought out just a couple of years ago.

Tattoo Artist Magazine: Now for Everyone!

Even though there are loads of tattoo magazines, there’s actually only a select few that are worth actually buying, in my opinion. One of those great magazines has always been Tattoo Artist Magazine, but before it was literally only for tattoo artists. It was always one of those things the rest of us who don’t … Continue reading
