Ready, set.....

So tomorrow is my first day of actually tattooing in the studio I work in. Although I've been tattooing nearly a year, these are going to be my first pieces carries out under the studios name, eek! I'm somewhat nervous, mainly because it's been a few weeks since I last used my machines properly. The first piece I've got to do is a Japanese piece that I've designed to cover a lovely tribal armband! Nice big peony blossoms and some waves. I'm really looking forward to it, it's going to be good to have a big piece to get stuck into for my first. I'm feeling a bit like a kid on Christmas eve!

a minor change

It seems that I may be getting old, I am definitely not 'down with the kids' anymore at least.  Partly due to Jade and I not having a TV, my refusal to listen to the majority of radio stations (due to the never ending torrent of ear defiling music) and my general dis interest in poop culture it seems the original choice for my blog title has been usurped.  Until reasonably recently I was blissfully unaware of a certain Justin Bieber, those were the days.  It seems the little pop icon is due to release a film - sadly (for my case) entitled never say never.  I've decided to re - title my blog as I would rather not have any affiliation, misconceived or otherwise, with Master Bieber (I think Mr might be a few years off yet.) So seeing as I'm no quitter, A minor change is needed, get back up and start again.

and now for some eye candy........enjoy

Sleepy Saturday

Saturday is walk in day in the studio I work at. Which normally means a very busy day. Today was relaxed in comparison to normal, but still had a lot to do. I designed an piece to go on a guys elbow last night and he came in for it today. The finished work looked awesome thanks to mike's (the studio owner) skill with a tattoo machine. Here's what it looked like on paper
