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

FST: Standing on the Shoulders of Giants, Part 3

Hey, look who’s back, bitches! I know I haven’t updated for a long time [reason here], but I was sent something today that made me think about tattooing in a way that I haven’t thought about for a long time, and I had to share it and write about it. I have another couple of … Continue reading

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

Total Tattoo: Out Now!

Total Tattoo has a new issue out, and it looks absolutely fantastic! The magazine has had a bit of a makeover recently, and I love it.

Tattoos to Help Burn Victims

We’ve seen many times how tattooing can help those who have undergone mastectomies after having breast cancer, showing how the art form can help those positively deal with their experiences and scars. It’s awesome to see tattooing used in such a way, showing how many people can benefit from something that some people still see … Continue reading

Too Much, Too Soon?

I read an article today from the Yorkshire Evening Post about a young tattooer called Kaine Westmooreland who is making waves with his new tattoo shop. Kaine’s work seems great, and he seems to be someone who is working really hard to becoming a great tattooer. What’s interesting, though, is Kaine is 19 years old, … Continue reading

Infections are Gross

BBC soap Holby City seemed a little more disgusting last night when they showed what can happen when tattoos get infected! The latest episode shows on one of the main character’s daughters come into the hospital after being tattooed, as it becomes hugely infected, leaving us all to see what can happen if you don’t go … Continue reading
