When the Circus Comes to Town...

Stewart Robson


Another video from Frith Street:

"In September 2011 some of our friends worked alongside us at Frith Street Tattoo.

Thanks to everyone who did tattoos and got tattooed. It was a pleasure and an honour."

Thanks for watching.

[MENTION=283]AlannaCA[/MENTION] Hahaha yep that's me. My wife's leg features in the video as well. It's the lady head on her calf tattooed by Chad Koeplinger. She also supplied the cupcakes featured at the beginning. She's watched it three times already.

Its a great video and many thanks to [MENTION=212]Stewart Robson[/MENTION] for putting this together.

Awesome Stewart, you really did a great job on this piece. As always, I am so honored to have worked along side everyone there, it is a true joy and one of the highlights of my year.

so lemme get this straight. those were your guest spots in ONE MONTH!?!?!? looks like i really needed to be studying in london this fall. wow, to think of all those artists getting to work together in the same environment over such a short span, thats truly special. i can only hope that it happens again, and hopefully i'll be able to find out about it in advance. how would one hear of a line of guestspots like that happening? it would have been an honor to get tattooed by that entire group, you really have good taste in people who take tattooing seriously and work to further themselves. that was awesome

I was in London two years ago and feel like I missed out on great opportunity to get tattooed = /

Also, big ups to Valerie for the "Drive" soundtrack usage = ) Great video!

Great Video!!! I'm privileged to have had a tattoo from Stewart this past July. What's better than that is I will be back there on November 25th. I had to go back!!! Over 5 thousand miles away..... totally worth the trip.

Unbelievably high quality of work - where do you even start? It is all so good, but I really love the space used in Stefano's red and black ship. That Rock of Ages back-piece is fucking epic.

The last time I was in the Frith St studio I was admiring Jordan Teear's red and black tattoos, particularly around his chest. Does anyone whose work this is?

Thanks everyone, [MENTION=2059]Dr Benway[/MENTION], If you mean the tattoos Jordan wears on his chest and neck, they were done by me, Steve Byrne and Chad Koeplinger. Frank Carter tattooed his stomach too.

[MENTION=2048]Mason Wanamaker[/MENTION], any good convention should have great tattooers working there and sometimes guesting at shops in the area. Some of the tattooers were fully booked within minutes of them confirming their visit, others took walk-ins and some only did one tattoo.

@Tim Hendricks, sincere thanks. As ever, it was pretty special and certainly an honour to have you (and everyone else) with us.

I don't know why I thought they were all done by the same person, other than they all seemed to be black and red. I only saw them in passing, but they struck as particularly good.

    • Hello, So I'm new here and reddit is just awful people so, I wanted advice. So for some reason, I allowed a tattoo be blasted down my arm. My fault I know. I'm very fit and complimented all the time how tone my arms are. So, I got a sun over a lotus tattoo. My artist is extremely talented, there is not 1 shaky line, crooked line, and hes not cheap. Hes been tattooing me and my husband a long time. The line work is out of this workd, perfectly straight. Its a bold tattoo. All black. Everyone loves it. But for some bizzare reason, I can not look at myself in the mirror at this tattoo. Has this ever happened to anyone before? It's healed, but all I do is cover it and hide it. Has this happened to anyone? It turned out bigger and bolder than I ever imagined. From my shoulder to about 3 inches above my elbow.   
    • Good luck. Job hunting sucks. I got laid off from a company after 20 years and it took six months to find a job. I was in the dreaded “middle” management role at an IT company. A little over two years later my new company was  bought out and they did a “restructuring” which means the people doing the work get fired so the people sitting on their fat asses get fatter.  I couldn’t find what I really wanted so I just retired. Might be a good time to think about switching fields.
    • The only "amazing" thing I've been doing lately is job hunting. Honestly, it’s stressful. I’m always worried about having enough money for basic expenses and stuff each month. There are lots of jobs on Layboard https://layboard.in/vacancies/jobs-in-uae/jobs-in-dubai/speciality/baker, where I’ve spent most of my time. I sent my CV to several companies and I’ve got decent baking skills, even without formal training. So I hope they'll give me a chance to do a test task or something to show what I can do.
