There are quite a few cool videos I’ve found over the christmas break, I’ll be sharing them with you fine chaps over the next few days.
This first one I found on
Stewart Robson’s blog, he filmed it at Frith St Tattoo in October. The video is fairly self explanatory, it features Oliver Peck and Thomas Hooper exchanging palm tattoos (arguably the most painful spot on the whole body). Enjoy.

While you’re at it, check out the other videos on Stewart’s blog, he’s working on a very interesting documentary project at the moment, and there are loads of cool preview videos.

Anyone that gets the reference in the title can officially join my cool kids club.
Andrew Mirfin is one of those tattooers that seems to slip under the radar a little bit. He is also one of those tattooers that just seems to nail
everything they do.

Awesome tattoo of our favourite English gentleman from Street Fighter.
Mat Lapping from Creative Vandals in Hull.
KidKimura is off up north getting another tattoo by the talented Miss
Kerry-Anne Richardson at Cock A Snook today. I am left jealous but excited for him as it will be the first Star Wars themed tattoo either of us have (the first of many no doubt).
Due to the design being a unique take on the Rebel Alliance logo (from what I understand), it is only fitting that I put KidKimura in the right frame of mind to be needle raped by sharing this video with you all.
Yes, you better believe your ears, that IS the Airwolf theme song. You are welcome.
I wonder if putting the word “pussy” in the title will bring in a lot of views? Sorry googlers, no vaginas here I’m afraid.

I have wanted to feature
Sarah Bolen on here for some time now. But these two forearm pieces she recently did while guest-spotting at Conspiracy Inc were just too suave not to put up straight away.
And as a bonus here is another tattoo that I stole from Sarah’s site.
Sarah normally tattoos out of
Black Mirror Parlour, Berlin.
