Just a small post about finding this website. For quite a while, we used to have two addresses- http://www.tattoosdayuk.com, and http://tattoosdayuk.wordpress.com. However, after so many people got used to using Wordpress feeds, subscribing to the site through email, and seeing the wordpress address in magazines, the regular .com address was barely used.
Because of that, when the vultures at GoDaddy decided they wanted nearly $100 for the regular address, I thought “fuck this”. It’s not worth paying so much for an address that no one uses.
To clarify, the website address you can use to get here is http://tattoosdayuk.wordpress.com. Please spread the word for any of your friends who were using the old address!
Thanks for reading, and being ultimately cool.
Well, most tattooers are getting ready today and tomorrow to settle down for Christmas, so like every year, we are doing the same! There will be no more posts until January 1st, which will be our 4th anniversary of the site- awesome! We’ve had a really great year, and we’d like to thank you all … Read more
So, the Teesside show was really awesome yesterday. It was great to see so many people having so much fun, and it was great to see some new and old faces! Smaller shows can be a little hit-and-miss, but this one was absolutely fantastic! I can’t really put too much about the show here, because … Read more
Well, what a week it’s been! As well as being an all round terrible week for me personally, the site’s been fucked! Basically, WordPress thought one of the links on the site was an advert. We’re happily advert-free, so they really dropped the ball on that one. Anyway, as you can see, we’re back. Due … Read more
It’s come to a point where I’ve realised that putting posters of myself with the word “OBEY” under it probably won’t work. At the moment, I am ridiculously busy, and I think it shows on this blog. Because of that, I am looking for someone else to join me in posting things up on here. … Read more
This post is not about tattooing. Not even in the slightest. I won’t do it again, promise. Lately, I’ve been hearing far too much crap around which people around tattooing don’t get along. It’s mainly writers, editors, and a few select tattooers. I’ve written about it as little as I could here, but it doesn’t … Read more
TattooMule.com needs its ass kicked. Today I found out that the leeches who own this “tattoo resource” (ha!) website have been stealing work from my friends at Inkslingers in Newcastle Upon Tyne, from their blog. The morons didn’t even bother to remove the watermarks. Well, I write that blog, and I make those watermarks, so … Read more
If you follow our Facebook page, you’ll see I made the mistake of saying I’d give away a prize if we get to 1,000 fans this week. I say mistake, because I carelessly said it without actually having a prize to give away. Well, I’ve had a look around, and I’ve managed to find a … Read more
So here’s a cool little update for you guys: we’ve gone all technical once again at Tattoosday UK, with a new Android App! This labour of love has been up for a few days now, but since the whole thing relies on a knowledge of RSS feeds and Flickr updates, I thought I’d wait … Read more
Today, Tattoosday UK is two years old. Well, officially two. We’re really two and a half, but the WordPress blog was started exactly two years ago, so we’re having an official birthday, like the Queen! Awesome. Before I go and get drunk and eat cake, I’d like to thank you guys for another fantastic … Read more
Well, it’s that time of year again, folks. Another time to kick back, relax and have a great time both reading the best posts of the year and laugh at my crappy Photoshop “skillz”. Fun times ahead! Thanks for another great year everyone, I promise 2011 will be even better.
If you live in the UK, you’re probably sick of hearing about voting right now. Chose between a bunch of wankers, and what happened? We don’t even have a Prime Minister. Fantastic! To cheer you all up, here’s a vote you can bet counts towards something- the Liverpool Convention’s Industry awards have announced their nominations, … Read more
We know you won’t want to admit it, but we know you use Facebook. And because we know this, we’ve set up the Tattoosday UK Facebook fan page. Become a fan, and you’ll gain access to site updates, things we didn’t report here, and the news on what’s going on here before anyone else. So, … Read more
Despite starting out as a Google Blog on Blogger.com, it was the move over to the site you see now, Tattoosdayuk.com, that we mark as our giant leap into the world of tattoos. Starting out exactly a year ago, we’ve developed into a great website, with a hell of a great future ahead. So, jumping … Read more
