Woefully absent, but I'm back!

I'm shocked to see that my last blog entry was back in May! I've been so busy since joining the amazing team at The Tattoo Emporium that even updating my website has been tricky.

I am thrilled to be able to say I've had an influx of my pinup, cute illustrative and comic book themed work lately, which I am relishing. The Halloween Tattoo Bash (Wolverhampton)  is just around the corner where I will be tattooing a Han Solo piece AND a Hellboy 2 Toothfairy, so that will be an epic weekend. I'll also be taking some cosplay kit with me to fully embrace a weekend of glorious geekery.

A huge thank you once again to everyone's continued support. I treasure each and every customer who walks through my door. You're all amazing.

Best of Day award at Scarborough Tattoo Show!

I'm back after a simply incredible time at the Scarborough Tattoo Show. The event was fun, friendly and relaxed, the weather and location stunning, and my self-themed Star Wars weekend turned out to be freakishly well timed when the Sentinel Squad UK folk rocked up in full Star Wars costume! 

To top it all off, my Princess Leia tattoo won Best of Day on Saturday, which was the most amazing shock (thank you so much to the judges for seeing my work as worthy of such an honour), and I got to go onstage with the entire Sentinel Squad UK crew for photos.

It couldn't have been more perfect. 

Thank you so much for all of the support and love ❤️ 

What an amazing weekend...

Manchester Tattoo Tea Party 2017 hit status of best convention I have worked at yet! A HUGE and very heart-felt thank you to everyone who came by my booth to say hi and have a chat, and everyone who offered so much support and appreciation for my work.

The atmosphere sizzled with friendly excitement, and the sheer amount of tattoo talent present was astonishing. It made me so proud, and vastly inspired, to be working alongside some of the best tattooists in the business. The next Tattoo Tea Party can't come around soon enough!

I also started the ball rolling with some guest spots, so I will almost certainly be making an appearance in Blackpool in May, which is so very exciting. I'll update with specifics once plans are firmed up.

For now, back to work (which isn't so bad when you've got the best job in the world) ...

Manchester Tattoo Tea Party is almost here!

So, we are only a few days away from one of my favourite tattoo conventions now. I'm fully booked with customers over the weekend (thanks so much for all the queries, though!), but do feel free to stop by and say hello. I'll have lots of leather-work bits for sale and I'm always happy to have a chat.

There's loads to do at this convention with oodles of entertainment and even an indoor fun fair, so hopefully see you there!
