Cock a Snook Tattoo Parlour in Newcastle is one of our favourite shops here at MVG. I myself have a fair bit of work from Kerry-Anne (and hopefully will have even more from her soon), and now they have added yet another talented artist to their ranks.
Dan Hartley does some amazing bold, super-clean traditional work, if that kinda thing’s your bag then contact the shop and get booked in. He starts there on the 17th of September.

These tattoos have caused something of a stir on facebook, and it’s not hard to see why.
Michelle Maddison is the apprentice at at Nemesis Tattoo Studio in Seaham, learning under John Anderton. John has clearly done an incredible job teaching this young lady, she has been tattooing for only 3 weeks and is already producing super clean tattoos with outstanding colour saturation. I have been seeing this more and more recently, thanks to very talented and generous teachers, and also the wealth of information available through the Internet, there is some unbelievable work being produced by apprentices at the moment.
By any standards, Michelle’s work is very impressive. I think that any tattooer, whether they’ve been working for 3 weeks or 3 decades, would be proud of this work.
So remember, you saw her here first! Unless of course you didn’t, in which case ignore me.
