Hello from good old Blighty!!

Hello all…

…so a brief introduction, I'm 27 and live in London England working as a graphic designer / illustrator.

So glad to found a site where tattooers and enthusiasts can come and talk. i don't have many friends who are into tattoos (apart from my wife) so would be cool to meet up at conventions talk, drink and chill.

Also I love the insightful but down-to-earth interviews with artists I admire and hope to be tattooed by some day.

Thank you for the welcome Iwar, I done actually just my right forearm, looking to get more but having to pay for my fiancee's as well and every the gent hers come first.

I am assuming you already have tattoos? That your back piece on your profile page?

Too many great tattooers to be honest, emily from Black Heart in Epsom is one of my fav's she has tattooed my fiancee a couple of times.

What about Norway? Not gonna claim that I know much or anything about your country bar the football. Many good tattooers?

@Melvyn Johnson If you're referring to the Eagle'n'Snake tattoo in my gallery, that's actually on my front. I just recently started my back, but I have a long road ahead of me yet...

Are you familiar with Frith Street, The Family Business, Into You, Black Garden, Jayne Doe, Alex Reinke (private studio), New Wave?? If not you should definitely check them out, as they are all in your neck of the woods.

Yeah, we have a handful of solid tattooers over here as well. My front for example was done by a local tattooer here in Oslo, but I also very much enjoy travelling and getting tattooed when I'm on vacation.

Oh, and I couldn't care less about football :rolleyes:

Haha! Iwar unfortuently been British and from the North East of England means I have to care… ruins most of my weekends!

Heard of most of those, apart from Jayne Doe and Alex Rinke ( so I'm gonna have a little look online now). Actually I am hoping to get "Jean Le Roux" from Black Garden to do my next tattoo, maybe at the Brighton Tattoo festival.

Although you have a long way to go on that tattoo its looking solid!

Next time you're around Epsom way take yourselves to see Ian Flower in Ewell Village , this guy can tattoo anything and for some reason often gets overlooked whats even more insane is that you probably won't have much of a wait .
