Hey bud. Thanks for the kind words mate.

Use to frequent quite a few shows, not so many these days, but real keen to hit N Zed this year, then London for 2015.

Started getting tattooed by Cliffe Clayton back in the day at High Energy in Fortitude Valley...spent just as much time in the Shamrock Hotel directly across the road ;)

Pretty much out of space, so been creeping up extending the neck line & started hitting the hands.

Your in Sydney mate?

G'day Mick, I have seen your back before somewhere probably in one of my magazines, really like your tattoos!

Got any future plans for work or are you already fully covered?

Who did your tattoos?

Cheers mate. Yeah, use to frequent a few shows but not so much these days. Pretty keen to hit the N Zed convention this November, then (fingers crossed) London for 2015.

Started out getting tattooed by Cliffe Clayton at High Energy in Fortitude Valley back in the mid 80's. I think we spent just as much time in the front bar of the Shamrock Hotel that was directly opposite ;).

Spent a few years travelling throughout the West, & one of my favourite shops was Bobby Thorton's, directly across from the Fremantle Workers Club, in Freo, on High street. Cheap cans of Bundy Rum always made for good sittings!

Pretty much all smashed in now bud...just started extending the neck line & working the hands & fingers. I like your front mate. Choice tattoo.

Thanks for the welcomes fellas.

A little late to the party but welcome @mickweder. Your backpiece is insane! I love it! Give Brissy my love! I live/worked there for 3 months once and it positively ruined me for mangos, blueberries and meat pies. Seriously, I don't eat mangos anymore...they just don't taste the same. :(

All the best!

    • Hey everybody, new tattoo enthusiast here looking for a place to chat, post pics and compare and get feedback on potential ideas for new pieces etc. Churs Hmm are you only allowed one post daily or something? After this first post its not allowing me to create any new posts at all rn?
    • Hey, thanks for your input!    Here's how it's doing now. About 4 weeks now. Definetly not as bad as I thought it would, but not great either. I'll be waiting to get it fixed later in the year. Good thing is it still looks pretty good even if its pretty shit 😂 live and learn!    This guy has done a couple full arm blackouts too so I really dunno what's up.    It's hard to find someone who has much experience doing this type of work where I live.    Have connected with another artist who has also done it and has decent healed pics, and am waiting on her advice too.  Also, for fixing it, do you have to go over the whole thing again, or just the dodgy spots?    How does using different black inks affect it?    Guy wants to touch up in a month or two but yea I don't think my skin will be ready by then lol dya have an instagram I can follow? 🙂
    • just got a message by a friend who send me these thread... I'm a blackwork tattooer...and to be honest it's one of the most difficult technic, cause you have to pack it super solid in large areas, with different "soft/thick" skin...so it's not wondering I'm mostly repairing blackouts... problems like yours can arise for various reasons... could be a voltage/handspeed issue at this area(overworked/traumatized) or he had a "dirty" needle (plasma and vaseline get stuck together with pigment and fills the space between the needles) could also happen it was accidentally touched with dirty hands by a friend/animalnose, got sticked at sleeping(you can't remember)... and i could make the list way longer... WE WON'T FIND OUT ANYMORE... but in the end the crust will switch to scars... sadly there will be no way around... keep it clean and let it heal... If it does not get better in the next few days, you can get cortisone ointment from the pharmacy.   BUT! THE GOOD THING! it can be reworked once the healing is over and the scars are settled down... so you should give it minimum half a year but as i said -IT CAN BE REPAIRED!! For the next time you should consult an artist who is into blackouts    sadly can't post images, so i can't show you how your scars will be looking and how it is looks after reworking a blackout...     So here we go... the first picture will be show how a healed overworked blackout looks like...   second/third was around 3 month after reworking by me...
