The Great Model Debate

This month, Tattoo Tattoo have taken a pretty big risk. At a time when we’re still putting models on magazine covers and making tattoo magazines look more like lads’ mags out of fear of poor sales, Total Tattoo have opted for a hand drawn model this month instead. Yes, it’s still a pinup in a … Continue reading

One of the other things this week that I totally needed to write about is the London Tattoo Convention.

Worst. Tattoos. Ever.

There’s always something quite charming about a group of people who are absolutely devoted to something fun and quirky. It’s even better when those people are more than happy to devote some of their own skin to it. The Simpsons Tattoos instagram page certainly shows this very well, with their collection of some of the … Continue reading


No Regrets?

I’ve been trying to find a way to start this blog post for what feels like forever. I’ve written various first sentences, then deleted them. In reality, I think I only need to tell you this to show what’s grinding my gears: someone has a left shark tattoo. If you’re not sure what I’m talking … Continue reading

We talk about tattoo history a fair amount on this site, but I think that it’s really cool to be able to trace back how tattooing has grown throughout the centuries. You may have seen already Otzi the Iceman mentioned here before, but if you haven’t you may like to look here. Basicaly, Otzi the … Continue reading

Zeke Owen has been a well liked and respected tattooer for many years now. His work has inspired so many tattooers and amazed every one of his clients.
