2012’s Most Popular Posts

Well, we had a bit of a mad year last year. Today I thought it would be a cool idea to take a look through some of those posts that you guys loved the most and may want to re-visit. In all honesty, I was kind of surprised at some of the results. Perhaps you will be, too. Either way, here is a list of the 10 posts you guys loved the most last year.


1. A Lucien Freud Tattoo?

Last year, Kate Moss revealed that Lucien Freud likes to spend some time with tattoo needles, and tattooed some swallows on the base of her spine. We also found out he used to tattoo people when he was in the Navy. Who knew? Click here for the post.

2. A Rare Chance to Join Tattoosday UK

Last year, I opened the flood gates and asked for some submissions from you guys, to see if anyone would be up for regularly writing for the site while I’m busy.

3. There’s a Dick Joke in there Somewhere…
