Greetings from London

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

My name is Niels, originally from Germany but in London for the past 12 years. I had my first Tattoo around 11 years ago by Mo Coppoletta whilst he was still at In2U. He did half of the calf on the right and the full round on the left.

After 11 years I had my next one on my left knee. Done in a 4.5hr session by Yushi Takei. Mo then finished off the right leg including the knee.

I came across LST during my extensive research for my next upcoming tattoos and must say this side, the people, interviews and forum fills me with joy and inspiration. The Tattoo community is such an awesome bunch of people. Open minded, friendly and straightforward.

I'm looking forward to some good times on this webpage.

Niels

Welcome Niels,

I was tattooed quite a bit by Mo (at The Family Business) in the past but haven't been to him in a few years now... Booked in for 2013 again though.

Where next? My plans are currently to get a 3/4 sleeve on both arms. Just started the right arm yesterday.. Or well, in August. Went to NYC and picked up a nice dancing calavera by Philip Szlosek at Kings Avenue Tattoo in Manhattan. After some research for artists in London I settled for Snappy Gomez at Kings Cross Tattoo. He is such a nice guy and has also a big love for skulls/calaveras and Mexico. Will post pictures from yesterday later..

@RoryQ: Mo is incredible great, skilled and funny. He certainly keeps the shop well running and entertained. Very glad I had the chance and honor to get work done by him. - The other guys in the shop are also pretty good. Had a skull done by Steve Vinall in August..

    • yep. 4-6 weeks before you really know what you've got.  post a link to the person who you're looking at for re-working it. 
    • I'd wait until it's healed so you actually know what it's going to look like before I start looking at having it "fixed." How exactly is the other artist going to "fix" it? I've seen more tattoos that look worse after they are fixed than better.
    • Hello everyone. So I got this rose tattoo two weeks ago. Still healing and I know I want to get it “fixed”. My issue with it is that while it looks like a rose you have to look hard to see it’s a rose. I have an appt. scheduled for April to have it worked on by a different artist (he did a pocket watch on my ribs last year that came out great). In meeting with him he said it lacks symmetry (which it does) among some other things, but he feels he can work on this. Looking for any advice. Is this fixable or is it a lost cause? If it’s not fixable then it is what it is, but Tully hoping for some input. Needless to say, I’ve been so bummed since I got because it didn’t come out how I would’ve liked. Thank you.
