Thinking of joining... would love to have the bat logo on me somewhere. I have a tattoo book that has tons of the BTC work in it. All I gotta say is that artwork has come a long was since. Undeniably one of the greatest tattooing influences of all time.

Didn't know that was still going on. Always thought of trying to get together something like that here, though with LST and the internet it seems kind of redundant.

@abees did you know Les Skuse from before and do they open up joining to just anyone? They don't jump you in, like @Lochlan and @hogg did to me when I got off the flight in SF?

@gougetheeyes when Les passed away, his son Danny kept the club going, i believe. and after his passing, it's now run by Jimmie (Les' grandson, Danny's son)..

i just looked back through some posts on Jimmie's Facebook, someone asked about if anyone can join.. here's what he said -

"it use to be anyone with a chest or back piece or over £ 5 pounds worgth of tattoos could join the club mate now days yes most people can join tattooist an fans mate theres no secret handshakes or teaching how to tattoo mate its just a club that my grandfather ran i continue to run it to keep his name alive".

I wonder how covered you'd be back then with £5 worth of tattoos? I have 2/3rds of a sleeve that has cost me £1200 thus far

Not sure what a pound or a quid conversion to toilet paper is lately.... everything is relative. £5 back in the day may have been a week's worth of wages and everybody's overhead was dirt cheap.

Got this today. Tattooed by Jimmie Skuse, Les Skuses' grandson. Had a nice chat afterwards and Jimmie showed me a load of flash thats been submitted for a book he's working on. Great day.

Awesome! I've got a book with pics from the BTC and hope to stop in to join the

club when the fam and I visit the UK next year.

I hope Les Scuse tattoos is still around. I've been trying to contact them about joining the Bristol Tattoo Club. Phone says wrong number; no email responses. And tomorrow is the day I drive through Bristol. :)
